Procedure or Surgery - papayagirl

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Invasive Lobular Carcinoma . Posted on February 1, 2012 View this journey (8 Experiences)

Feeling OK just 30 hours after surgery but am sad the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes. That will mean chemo and likely radiation and hormone therapy. It will be a long journey.

    Glad your surgery is over -- a hurdle completed!!
    Sorry about the Lymph Nodes. In my case -- believe it or not -- it was a blessing that it was in the Lymph Node. My tumor (4.9) did not show on my routine Mammogram. They noticed that my lymph node was a "little generous" so they did an ultrasound -- still did not show. They biopsied the lymph node -- called me the next day and told me it had breast cancer cells in it -- so back for the MRI which did show a little red flash. Anyway, thank God for the lymph node or I would have gone home for another whole year thinking everything was good and that is scary. The survival stories of women with many many lymph nodes involved are so numerous, common and inspirational. I had my 3rd chemo this past Thurs. If you go to my wall/journey you will find that I posted my experiences in great detail. It may help. Keep us posted -- everyone on here truly cares.
