    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I have breast cancer and it's invasive ductal carcinoma and it's triple negative. And to top it all I have the BRCA2 gene mutation.

    Decision Point

    Was originally scheduled for a lumpectomy. Found out I have the BRCA2 gene. Had to decide whether to just do lumpectomy or do double mastectomy and double oophorectomy. I decided on the latter. I am not happy about losing my two "sista's". They have been with me a long time. But I am more worried about my long-term survival, so, for me, there is no other choice.
