    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    So many surprises. Tumor was bigger than imaging showed prior to surgery (thought it was 8mm, but found out it was 1.5cm!) and that 2 lymph nodes out of 16 removed were positive as well. Starting chemo (OH NO!) Oct 4th. Biweekly/4 month regimen.

    Breast Reconstruction (Implant)

    Procedure or Surgery

    I have only had the skin-sparing mastectomy of the right breast, followed by 2 saline injections in the allederm sling. Starting Chemo, not sure what to expect. Worried about the PET scan and any more "surprises".

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