Biopsy results are back
On the 02.01.2013 my GP finally rang me to tell me, that there was no cancer found in my sentinel node biopsy. I could have laughed, danced and cried! I actually cried. I realised then what a weight was taken from my shoulders. Although I was quite positive there was always a doubt lingering in the back of my mind.
I will see the specialist next week to find out about my further treatments. Somehow it is all too easy and I am still waiting for the big blow. It hasn't really sunk in, how life threatening breast cancer is and that I have got it. (I feel more like I have had it!).
I want to know how does it happen that a cancer appears. What makes a cyst turn into cancer? I had my first cyst examined about 12 years ago, while I was breastfeeding my daughter. Over the years I had a few more examined and they all turned out to be not cancerous. In 2011 I had a biopsy which was very unpleasant. It wasn't really too bad but I thouhgt: will I have to go through this every year now just to find out it is nothing?! So when I felt another lump in 2012 I thought: 'oh no, not again!' and I postponed seeing my GP for about 3 months. But something kept nagging . I finally went to have tests done and it turned out to be cancer.
Here I am now. Ready to accept whatever is offered to me. And grateful to have so much support.
