I would highly recommend a mammotome biopsy for anyone who needs to have one done! Looks kinda like one of those long lighters that you start fireplaces and grills with....but I was in and out in less than a half and very minimal blood loss and 6 "MOST EXCELLENT" samples taken (3 from each breast) ok, because I am sooooo nosy I wanted to watch the whole thing, the samples looked very similar to wax worm for all my fishing buddies out there. Yellowish/white in color.......He will have the results rushed through and I will know what kind of breast cancer I am dealing with by 1:00 ish tomorrow afternoon.
McDreamy told me to get in touch with my GP then get an appointment with the Oncologist and a plastic surgeon....I will definitely need chemo.......radiation is still iffy because they will not know about the nodes until they remove the breast. (3 nodes effected no radiation, more than 3 I will need radiation too)
Down side to this is the Oncologist can't get me in until August 25th!!!! I told them that McDreamy wanted all this done as soon as possible and they are now talking to Oconcologist's Nurse to see if they can sneak me in sooner.........McDreamy wants this boob gone next week!
Because I will need chemo they can't do the new boob surgery until after my treatments are over....they will be stretching out the skin with a saline solution or even tissue from a mini tummy tuck! BONUS!!!!!! After all treatments are finished they will either redo the healthy right boob or remove it and start all over again on that one.
And because I am nosy, I had to ask what they plan on doing with the areola and the nipple from the old boobs. Do they use them on the new boobs? With cancer nope! The thought of cadaver areolas and nipples is just too much for Jim to deal with and I must say that would kinda freak me out a little bit.....It would feel like Jim is cheating on me or something! lmaoooooo So this is what they do......... They reconstructed a [piece of your own skin into a nipple shape and they tattoo on an areola!!!! Amazing isn't it???
I can just see now, while I am out in polite society when this is all over and done with and I get that, "OH MY GOD, she has her nose pierced!" look and then it's open season from there on out.............Yes, I have my nosed pierced and I have two two (or possible 3) tattoos too? One is of a shamrock on my ass and the other one is a nipple on my breast (or breasts) Wanna see em?? I can just see all the color drain from their faces now........life is going to bet a lot more interesting around here for me! lol lol lol
I still don't know if it's anywhere else in my body, I won't know that until I meet with the Oncologist and he orders, chest scan, blood work, body imaging scan and a few others....right now I am wrapped in an ace bandage and told I could not go bowling tonight like I do on the league with my girlfriends.........he said you can go cheer them on, but NO BOWLING today.....of course I asked if I could still have a cocktail and he said yes..but NO BOWLING........the irony of all this with my girfriends bowling team is our team name is "DOUBLE D DELIGHTS" now it lookes like we are going to have to change it to 3 DOUBLE D's and a C!" ..................My Bad!
