Pathology results received....
Thanks once again for your amazing love and support via this fantastic BCNA website
The waiting game is over as I received my pathology results yesterday. Not the outcome I was hoping but I need to try and remain positive.
After having a mastectomy (right breast) and 4 lymph nodes taken it was revealed that my cancer was not 2cm but 4cm and the remaining other cancers were 2cm and 9cm. This was upsetting but my surgeon then went on to say that they had found that 1 of the lymph nodes that had been taken had some cancer cells - I was shattered This is not the outcome I was hoping for and I feel as though I have just taken 2 steps backward. I now have to go back for more surgery next Wed where he will take a few more lymph nodes.
Needless to say yesterday was a big low point for me and I was very emotional. I have also since found out that my cancer is HER2 negative but ER and PR positive. All very scary and I am still trying to get my head around all of the language and types of cancer out there.
I have had a better day today although haven't tried to think much about next week. Must say it is hard to remain positive when you receive news like this.
Sorry to have a whinge - just feel like I needed to talk to someone Thanks for listening xxxx
