    Kath, I am sorry to welcome you to this site. Early on I felt caught in a tornadoe with everything moving so fast. It is okay to say WAIT! Let me catch my breath. Ask, vent, find info and connect with others who truly understand. I am also from Bay Area (treatment at UCSF), and was stage 1.

      Yep! You have final say on EVERYTHING!!! Just came from appt. with my oncologist who treats me much differently and better since I act like the captain of the team.

      I am with Kaiser. It was found with a routine mammo. So far, they have been on top of things, setting me up with oncology appointments, a well breast coordinator, etc. I’m scheduled for another surgery on the 20th to determine if cancer has spread to lymph nodes. Will then discuss treatment options. Btw - have you heard of cancer immunotherapy?

      Is this surgery a sentinel node biopsy?

    Welcome to a wonderful site for you in your journey with cancer. It felt like such a whirlwind for me until a doctor reminded me I was the leader of this. My right now advice is take someone with you to every appointment, ask for the entire treatment plan not just the first step and ask for ALL YOUR OPTIONS not just the ones used most along with the survival rates for them. It is okay. There are wonderful people here that you can ask questions, vent, and know they have walked this path. Hugs!
