Hi folks. I know this is a quiet forum but I need to post so rather, great, but odd news. I had been staged 1A, IDC, with biopsy. After a MRI of two more troubling areas, we went from lumpectomy to mastectomy. Today I saw the surgeon and I was restaged. I've never been so happy in my life to say "I've been downgraded"! I have a papillary carcinoma that was encapsulated. It has been restaged to Stage 0. Other troubling areas, were b9. Now on one hand had I known this a head of time, maybe we could have just done the lumpectomy. On the other hand, I may have lost my breast but no more uprisings and no need at this point to remove the other breast. Guess I'm a rare breed as they said it's not really in- situ, but it is treated and staged as such. Number one question on my mind, did MS, an overactive immune system, send troops to circle this cancer and encapsulate it to keep it from becoming invasive? Or did the chemo, Mitoxantrone, that I took for MS back in 2005-2008, make the difference? God blessed me today beyond measure. I pray for every community member and their families to find healing measures and faith in a better day.
