DeleriumPie - hang in there things will fall into place. Keep the faith for a good report.
I too did neo adjuctive chemo for 6 rounds and my results turned out great. I met with my BS last Thursday and she said my new mammo and ultrasound showed no tumor but there was still some blood flow in the tumor area but the chest wall appears to be activity free.
Surgery scheduled for August 26. I could do a lumpectomy and radiation or a mastectomy with no radiation. I did have several other calcifications deep against the chest wall in both breasts that did not get biopsied before chemo. With my high grade and the calcs disappearing we decided on a bi-lateral mastectomy and no radiation but will delay reconstruction until after all pathology is in. If the findings come back without perfect clear margins I will opt for radiation as security option. Appointment with PS next Wednesday.
LoriAnne I hope your hot flashes are diminishing. I remember how it was when I went through menopause. Not fun, try Cindy's suggestions if your team agrees.
Cindy did they say we could go through menopause symptoms again on HT? I have not even discussed this or researched this step yet. I sure wasn't planning on that.
I got my DD and hubby off to Baku on Friday. So hard to say goodbye for 11 months until they return for 6 weeks next summer. They were very pleased with their home when they got there. Other employees had stocked their pantry and refrigerator with some essentials to last for a few days until they can figure out shopping etc. They do seem super excited to begin their new journey though.
I definitely will be staying busy for the next few weeks my house is a total disaster zone, boxes everywhere. My other DD and I will cull through them decide what anybody might want, store keepsakes and take the rest to charity.
Oh well, gotta run time for church.
Love and hugs to everyone.
Jeannine. My bi-lateral DIEP turned into a single DIEP due to bad veins. Next was a Ruben's flap. Wound opened requiring a wound vac. 6 revisions using fat grafting and scar revisions; completed nipples and tattoos.
