    Oh No

    Found a lump mid - September 2012...Saw Gyno 1st week of October. October 30th went for Diagnostic Mammogram and Ultra-sound. Radiologist came in and said he was afraid it was cancer. Back to Gyno that day, then he called and made apt with general Surgeon. October 31st. Surgeon came in and said, I think it is cancer. Came back after lunch and had biopsy in office. Now THAT is scary for Halloween. Friday night, was at a trampoline indoor park (taking a girlfriend's son on playdate - since she started Chemo for breast cancer that day! - go figure.) and got the call from the Dr. It is Cancer. ILC....5-15%, Mastectomy, Reconstruction, Chemo, spreads to other side, much to hear....Monday they are scheduling an MRI for sometime during the week.
