hi buttons, both breast surgeon and plastic surgeon said no go for surgery pending confirmation of another biopsy being positive. As I have had radiation twice I am not a good candidate. The biopsy was again cancer. So no surgery for now. Which is sorta good cause I didn’t have to decide. Referred me to another MO who is ordering gene sequencing to work out all possible options for further systemic treatment. This is good cause I really thought I was at the end of treatment options.
Rosecal, I don’t think a second round of radiation is usual nor good. I have such poor blood supply to my chest wall it is problematic. Even the punch biopsy I had the other day is likely to take a very long time to heal. Especially cause it was on the tumor. Ouch!
Hoping everyone is doing as well as can be.
