Biopsy site (not for the squimish)

If someone would of told me that someday I would be posting a boob shot of myself on the Internet I would of told them to "STEP AWAY FROM THE CRACK PIPE!!!!" But here I am, in the hopes that my journey with my newly diagnosed breast cancer (Yes, the Pathology report confirms it is breast cancer but they were still finishing up the report when my Dr. McDreamy called for a results.) So at this time I still do NOT know what kind of breast cancer I have, but will know for sure when I go see the Oncologist tomorrow at 12:00 p.m.


Dr. McDreamy also wants to see me right after the Oncologist tomorrow do to what my biopsy site looked like when I peeled off my ace bandage. So for those that are squeamish or don't care to see the biopsy site please click the red box on the top right of the journal. A good friend of J-Land has been my inspiration on Breast Cancer awareness by posting shots of herself after her mastectomy We all know and love her as Lahoma aka Mzgoochi  ~~~> MzGoochi's journal link. Like I said, we are here to learn, teach and lean on one another and today I am one of the teachers. PLEASE HAVE YOUR MAMMOGRAMS EVERY YEAR AFTER 40 OR EARLIER IF IT ALREADY RUNS IN YOUR FAMILY!!!!!!


 


What once used to be an incredible TA TA! lol lol lol

The darkest roundish thingy is the incision location, notice the indentation on top right of breast is the "Dimple" they refer to as dimpling when giving yourself you own breast examination. What for sign of this please!

I've always heard the term "dimple" but had no idea that it would look like that.
This picture is worth a thousand words.  No doubt.
Thanx again for sharing this with me/us.

Hi Kim,

Bet ya thought I'd disappeared, huh?  Sorry....a lot going on and I haven't been able to be online.  Although, after catching up on your journal, nothing compares to what you've had going on!  I'm so sorry you have breast cancer.....but I have to say, you are truly an inspiration Kim!!  God must have chosen you, knowing you would be such an inspiration for so many others....your positive attitude and witty little self will get you through this, and you are already helping so many women by educating us as you go through this.  I just love you......and I'm keeping you in my prayers.  If you ever need to "talk", please know I'm always here for you. I hope you get through this without a lot of pain.  Your attitude and sense of humor is amazing, just as you are!!

Take Care Dear Lady,
Love,
~Bilinda~
