From Lumpectomy Reduction to Mastectomy
Oh cancer is twisty.
I had my lumpectomy with reduction last week. It went perfectly and could not be happier. I’m recovering nicely at home. My plastic surgeon gave me lovely perky boobs that I’m just getting used to
Then the surgeon called today with all the pathology reports and now I have to go back for a left mastectomy.
When all the reduction tissue went to pathology they found a ton of DCIS all through the tissue. So, thank god I had the reduction as the lumpectomy margins were perfect.
No idea what kind of mastectomy I’ll have. I need another plastics consult I guess. Ocotype is off to the lab but I have a two week wait on that.
On the one hand I’m ecstatic we can cut it all out. On the other hand I’m like what the f*ck.
nothing in my nodes. Grade changed from 1 to 2. I think I’m still stage 1A, but haven’t seen the most recent write up from the tumor board.
I‘m just venting Scared and shocked.
