    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Oh No

    The surgeon did a biopsy on a lymph node on my neck, which had been there over 2 mos. The pathology report came back ER+ breast cancer........BUT after 3 mos of MANY X-rays, and I mean a bunch (4 mamograms, MRI's, CT, full body PET scan, etc) the dr's still could not find ANY tumor. Finally, after that I ask my dr about my ovaries being X-ray'd (long story) And she ordered a vaginal ultrasound. And sure as sunshine, there they were.....tumors on the ovaries and one near the aorta. The moral of this story is, when they say ovarian cancer "hides" BELIEVE IT, because it does. Anyway, I finished chemo and still cancer was left, went to see a gynecological / oncologist and he did surgery......they saved my life and here I am, in remission almost 4 years later. Thank God for my life....everyday of it.
