Timeline between diagnosis and surgery??
Hello — I was diagnosed with ILC in right breast on September 22nd of this year, it is ER/PR+, HER2-, no BRCA, primary lesion at 1.8. I'm curious about the recommended timeline between diagnosis and surgery. I had a follow up MRI which showed additional lesions and am now scheduled for an MRI Biopsy at the end of December. I have not had much communication from my doctor - the only reason I know of the additional lesions is from the results that were reported on MyChart (early November). I had to call to schedule the MRI Biopsy based on a text I received - no context provided. The MRI biopsy puts me three months out from diagnosis — is that typical? Would a surgery 4 months out be considered a reasonable timeframe? My anxiety is spiking with the long time line and the lack of communication. I would appreciate hearing from the community about their experience with the diagnosis>surgery timeline. Also, is it unreasonable to expect to hear from your doctor about test results and next steps (this seems like a reasonable expectation to me but it has been radio silence…so maybe not?).
