So my #1oh no -was discovering a golf ball size mass in my L breast at the beginning of june! oh no #2 -it took 3 weeks to get enrolled into BCCTP and obtain my clinical breast exam!! Oh no #3- it took another month before i could obtain a digital mammogram & ultra sound imagery!!! Within 3 days i was dealing with a needle core biopsy. Oh no# 4- getting a diagnosis of invasive ductal carcinoma and having to wait another 2 weeks before my appointment with a specialist to discuss surgical options.!!!! Oh No #5- having to make a decision between 2 surgical procedures..either lumpectomy followed by 30 rounds of radiation...or mastectomy and no radiation!!!!!!!!
