    Well friday was a bust. Had the consultation visit with the Ob and she felt a mass on my right side. I so wished I had my ovaries removed last year during my hysterectomy. She decided to run a CA-125 and a sonogram. I will know results tomorrow. Meanwhile my surgery is next Tuesday.

    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): My surgery is scheduled for May 8th. I will have a double mastectomy as well as an ovariectomy due to the Brac positive gene. I will let you know how it goes. Until then I am praying that my outcome is not that of my mothers.

    Oh No: I had actually had pain in the area in whcih my tumor was found. It was a sharp burning pain that was inconsistant. I kept feeling for a lump but never found one, until one day I felt a small pea like formation. I immediately scheduled my appointment. My doctor sent me for a mammorgram (6 months early). My mother was diagnosed with breast cancer at 44 and died at 48. I am 44 with same diagnois. I was careful and did my monthly self examines and had my yearly mammograms since I was 25. I was recently tested for the Brac gene and I am positive. I wish I had done it sooner.

      I am an 8-year breast cancer survivor with a strong history as well - my mother and grandmother both died of it. PLEASE don't stress too much about the genetic aspect and in fact, I would urge you to get a copy of a book entitled "The Biology of Belief" by Bruce Lipton (he's a cell biologist). I was totally freaked out about my "chances" until I read this book. If I can help you in any way, please let me know!
