Lumpectomy - Sabine

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Invasive (Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma . Posted on September 5, 2012 View this journey (5 Experiences)

Surgery, really was a breeze. Had my lumpectomy on Friday, returned to work on Monday. My surgeon, Dr. Bongers at Beaumont in Royal Oak Michigan, does only breasts, she was so wonderful, informative and thorough. She took my husband and I through the entire process and actually made it a little less scary. Initially we thought it was stage one, but after going in, it was just 0.1mm into stage 2. She recommended chemo and radiation. I trusted her, so I really know whatever she suggested I would do. I did not need a second opinion, I knew what had to be done. My initial surgery was followed @ 3 weeks later with another procedure to clear my margins. She had already told me the cancer was very slow moving, so she felt confident in waiting for my initial swelling to go down. the second procedure was done in 5 minutes and the margins were cleared.
