Had a mammogram and ultrasound on 30th Dec after noticing increased density in left breast. Got a phone call on the drive home. I live one hour away from larger medical facilities. I’m 47 .Married. 3 boys, youngest just turned 18 and live in a small country town .Had the biopsy later followed by lumpectomy in Sydney ( 4 hours away as the nearer surgeon was away at the time) . My surgeon rang today and pretty good news. Mass 15mm. Grade 2 . Sentinal node biopsy was clear.At biopsy she said it was a hormone driven type . So radiotherapy ( one hour away ) but probably not chemo she is going to check with someone . My post op appointment is on the 31st but she said she couldn’t keep the good news to herself which was much appreciated. Of course great news but not totally convinced it hasn’t spread somewhere. I presume most people feel this way. Thanks for listening.
