    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    U of M did three lumpectomies that I believe just spread it around so two years later my nipple puckered and turned yellow . I knew I had to have mastectomy at that point and wish that I had been given that advise due to having grade 3 cells ( more aggressive to treat.) I think they were remiss to do a third try. The Cleveland Clinic Dr cautioned that the cancer could be spreading to skin and surgery soon was necessary followed with chemo again as prophlactic. They needed to remove a lot of tissue and chest wall muscle to get it all. Had to discontinue chemo because Taxal(?)was giving me neropathy in feet and hands.
