It would be exhausting and overwhelming to tell my story over and over, so I choose to tell it here.
I'll know when I get emotional I get a wobble in my voice and lose the ability to articulate words. Only a squeak escapes.
I am okay and at peace with the decision to have a double mastectomy. I am terrified but calm , well at the moment.
The pathology isn't back yet but it is most likely DCIS Ductal Carcinoma In Situ.
I trust the Specialist completely because he saved my husband and I'm comfortable with him .
I can't control what else happens, or if they find something else but I can choose this because my husband and my children are my whole world. I can live without boobs.
A mastectomy lessens the risks of it becoming invasive. The Dr is hoping to avoid chemotherapy and radiation therapy if there is no lymph node involvement. I'll have a Lymphoscintigraphy on Wednesday before surgery to map them.
The surgery is booked for Wednesday, prayers, positive vibes and cyber hand holding would be much appreciated. I may not have a chance to respond to messages for a while.
This website really explains it better than I can
