Updated treatment plan
Went to Dana Farber today for 2nd opinion
On my tnbc, stage 1 grade 2 1.2x.09 x1
Loved my surgeon at DF she is wonderful!
She did a physical exam and we went over my path report from biopsy
She emphasized importance of lymh nodes
My biopsy u/s biopsy report stated clear
but she said only an MRI can really tell for sure
In order to make the best treatment choices, shes asked me to come back to Boston in 7 days for MRI, mammo ultrasound and oncology consult to make sure we have everything we need in front of us
She stated this would help decide if we should do surgery first or chemo first
I told her yes of course but i was anxious about the wait and really want to get this treatment started
She stated that its not going to grow and spread in a couple weeks time and we need to have this information
Im just uneasy that its going to take another couple weeks!
My hometown surgeon never brought up the MRi or any other tests and he had me scheduled for a lumpectomy on 8/15
