Everyone is hoping right along with you! It's a tough time waiting to see what's happening.
Wishing you the best.
Bilateral second look ultrasound today. It looks like right breast is probably clear. US on left indicates likely lymph node trouble =(
What the XXX, can't a girl catch a break around here? I hope it is still gonna be okay with nodes involved!
I was in the same exact place as you are now, exactly one year ago. Started out simple mammo, then right to US, then biopsy. You should probably also have MRI - the dye will show things better. Also, to confirm node issue they should biopsy. . I had all of these tests and MRI showed a bad node, but they could never find it in US. So I did a mastectomy --left side only-did not want to take any more chances with these tricky nodes. Even in the preliminary look under the microscope nodes that lit up with the dye looked negative, thought I was clear until pathology came back and one node was bad. I just didn't think I could take any more news like this. I ended up doing chemo and radiation. But, unless you have a pathology report to confirm this node, it is not 100%. Talk to your surgeon about biopsy and MRI. Just remember there a lots of us out there and we are all pulling for each other. You can make it through and we are here for you!
Hang in there, my prayers are with you. I had a right breast mastectomy in dec 2010 with 3 positive nodes out of 21 removed, followed by chemo and radiation. Then reconstructive surgery with implant. Just want to reassure you that it can be ok, and you have the support of others who have been there. :) Stay strong
