    Oh No (Just Diagnosed): As I was getting sonogram, the hotshot radiologist so arrogantly announced, “Well, I have good news and bad news. Good news is you got your mammogram, the bad news is you have cancer.” Just like that. Heartless. I was so shocked I couldn’t respond. Left the appointment and cried all the way home.

      Wow. Poor bedside manner to say the least. I'm sorry you had to experience that.

    Decision Point (I do not want chemo, rad, or hormone therapy. I need to find others who have chosen not to do these, and find out how they are progressing. I eat Whole Foods, organic, no processed food, take supplements, exercises. Follow ketogenic way of eating,. BMI 2): Anyone doing more natural methods? Not interested in chemo, rad, or AIs at all.

      Doing holistic treatment more than likely isn't going to get rid of your cancer, and more than likely, the cancer will go further...which is exactly not what you want...the more the cancer progresses the harder it is to treat, and the diagnosis much tougher. I am triple negative, tumors were grade 3 (aggressive), had i not done surgery, chemo, etc., i probably wouldn't be here to day....everyone is different, read up on treatments, speak with your doctor, the nurse navigator is also a good resource. Best of luck to you.

      I agree with ChicagoSandy when she says attitude and religious faith have no bearing on whether you get breast cancer or not. But both attitude and faith can make a huge difference in how you respond. Staying positive is powerful.

      My neighbor wanted to go the holistic route and it went on to metastasize and she died.
      Please consider attacking it with both approaches.

      I am so sorry that you had an experience like that!! Any practitioner that is tasked with delivering news of any diagnosis should have sensitivity training. Being flip and arrogant is not acceptable when your words can have a significant impact on a person's well-being. I had a similar experience when the radiologist told me "There is no good news. See a breast specialist." and he walked away. I will keep you in my prayers for a journey to complete health.
