    Hi otagrad97, Iam sorry to here of your diagnosed, hope your doing ok, hang in there stay possitive! I was diagnosed with ductal carcinoma a few months ago. I had a second oppion done at the University of Michigan. After a second bio, they comfirmed DC in situ. Needless to say i had descion to make. I didnt want treatments of any kind. Dr.s suggested a parshal mastectomy with rad. Well, i realy didnt want rad at all. No way. My only other thing to do was have the breast taken off. Now another decesion to make should i just take the one or both. Well, i had a double mastectomy two days before Christmas, im just a few wks out now. Its a slow go, but doing better everyday. Im driven now, but not back to work yet. My heart so sunk when Dr. said i may have to have the chemo afterwards, depends on test results. I was hopen after making the decesion on haven both breast removed i wouldnt have to go through that.. My results come back and no chemo needed. I feel so blessed that it didnt come to that for so, so many reasons.. Im sorry that i hadnt got on here sooner, and been able to talk to u about things. I had computer issues, not no more have new laptop, im good to go.. Stay strong and possitive.... Best wishes & Take care TTYS
