I had a mastectomy only on my right side late June 2021. Had revision surgery 5 weeks ago. My calcium level in my blood has been elevated all year so my oncologist ordered a CT scan and bone scan. CT came back with swollen bilateral axillary lymph nodes. My oncologist wants to see me first thing Monday morning. I had 3 sentinel nodes removed during June's surgery and they were free of cancer. I'm scared it's cancer again. My scans were clear for all kinds of cancers (brain,lung,anything in pelvis or abdomen). I have no illnesses or infection or conditions that would cause enlarged lymph nodes. anyone have any experience with this?
thanks!

Dx 5/3/2021, LCIS/DCIS/IDC, Right, 2cm, Stage IIA, Grade 2, 0/3 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2- (FISH)

Digezy - Lots of things can cause swollen lymph nodes. Hope your doc can give you positive answers Monday. You know the drill - try to find things to distract yourself over the weekend.

In the mean time, I see you posted this on three different threads. It usually works better to stick to one thread so people can answer & follow your progress.
