    Oh No

    My first reaction is like everyone else....I cryed. I didn't know what kind I have and it really didn't matter..everyone says 'Itll be ok. The advances are great" but I still feel afraid. I have done research on it but its so generalized, I want to know about me. I am hopeful and I have lots of faith in Jesus, that I will be fine....I guess this is just the process I have to go thru.

    Procedure or Surgery

    Had my surgery yesterday. Went well but the pain to put in the markers was more than I expected. Also the needle to shoot the tracer dye, was so excruciating that I just can't describe it. The surgery was a breeze compared to the others. Now I wait for pathology reoprt to come back. My Doctor is going to call with results. In two week I go back for a wound check and to find out what my further treatment will be.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Agree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Agree
