Misdiagnosed - Dianne04

Oh No Associated with Breast Cancer. Posted on October 9, 2012 View this journey (3 Experiences)

I went for a routine mammogram right before Christmas. My doctor didn't want to ruin my holidays, so didn't tell me till Jan., but told his wife, who told her best friend, whose husband was on my school's board where I was Head of School--so my board knew before I did. Had biopsy and was scheduled for surgery. Got a call on Fri. to be at the hospital on Mon. to have my SPLEEN removed! I called my sister in Houston whose boss got me in with her surgeon. I went on that Monday morning. He looked at my xrays and said everything needed to be redone. I had cancer in both breasts. I'm alive today because I went to Houston.
