I am a 35 year old women, with 2 teenagers. I went to my gynocologist for my annual checkup, just like I do every year. She said that since I am on HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy) that I should get my Baseline Mam. done. Neither of us felt anything. So, on a tuesday morning I had it done @ 10:30. By the time I got to work, they had already called me and wanted me to come back in for a Sonogram. I went in for the sonogram the following day. At which point after it was done, they took me right over to the doctor. In her words: "It don't look good, we need to get a biopsy of it." I scheduled the biopsy for the following day. I went in for the biopsy, and for all you women who are just starting this procedure.. it is relatively pain free and easy.
My Gyno called 2 days later, and said that it was inconclusive, that they need to do a open biopsy. They are pretty sure its cancer, but they don't know what type. I have surgery on Aug 6th, he is not going to do a open biopsy, he is just going to a lumpectomy and then biopsy it. At present my tumor is 1.6cm to 1.8cm.
I have found that I have more courage, and more will to live now more then ever.For all you women that know for sure, god bless you and my prayers are with you. For all you women that at the same point I am at cry, get babied, educate yourself and then move on and live. Do what you have to do, but fight.
