My diagnosis/treatment is very similar to yours but mine worked!! You should be like me now!. I had aggressive DCIS, left breast, 3 years ago & had a lumpectomy to remove it. My operation went so well with clear margins & I only ended up having 3 weeks of rad treatment following the surgery. i went private like you & had an amazing surgeon & I didnt have to pay anything! I also had a hook line put in. I do hope today goes well. Your surgeon should be laying out the red carpet for you. I will be thinking of you today & sending love, thoughts & prayers to you. Stay strong & know we are all thinking of you xxxx
Reggie3 said:Update So I sacked my surgeon I just couldn't stomach the thought of him coming anywhere near my body. I cancelled today's surgery. Told him bluntly in writing that I was unhappy with the standard of care I received, got a fluffy response! I got a second opinion and have just come home from a further ultrasound and biospsy from a different area on the left breast at 6 o'clock x seven core samples, this should have been done before initial surgery like OMG! I go back to new specialist early next week he is so lovely and really looking out for me and thorough.The pathology results from today will determine the surgery treatment plan. I must commend the breast cancer care nurses for organising the second opinion and supporting me at the appointment. I am also so grateful for the BCNA nurse counsellor for her support and advice. And finally all of you for your kind words, support and encouragement to stand up for myself I couldn't have done this without you.The saga continues I will be pursuing the legal route when I have a bit more energy and have sorted my health.This isn't the end of this journey unfortunately so I'll keep you all posted.
