Sorry for your diagnosis. I had tumors in the left and had a mastectomy. Now I'm in chemo. Then I have rads. Lobular is a sneaky one. Easily missed. I was 41 at diagnosis.

Surgery (or chemo) usually happens fairly quickly. Depends on what treatment plan is decided. Between my diagnosis and mastectomy it was less than 3 weeks and it was only that long because I had to recover from having my implants out.

For your drs appt, write down questions and bring a friend who is great at taking notes with you. Things tend to happen real quick, it did for me. I had to give myself a very quick education on chemotherapeutic drugs, etc. because I was way out of my comfort zone (I'm a RN but no real knowledge of oncology). I now know that chemo nurses are angels on earth because they have let me cry and sob on their shoulders and pulled me through my dark days. And there will be the dark days, unfortunately.

This is a crappy deal, no doubt, but you will get through this.

Please feel free to share more about yourself!

Sorry you are joining us but welcome. Depending on size and hormonal factors that will determine treatment. I was diagnosed in late July last year and had surgery a little under two weeks later. There is a good chance you may just need surgery and either tamox or an AI depending on your age. Thats the route I went. Had surgery, did Oncotype test, came back low risk. have been on tamoxifen for past year.

Absolutely have someone go with you if possible to take notes. You don't realize sometimes how even though you are now going through the everyday motions, you are in a daze.

Suzyshackle, ILC sucks! I'm sorry you find yourself here, but I found so much educational research support and moral support at this site I don't know how i could have gotten through all my treatment without it.

No one can advise you to "go natural" or not. You can go to the discussion board threads for alternative medicine etc. here, but in this early time I wouldn't make any commitment--keep an open mind, since you admitted you're confused. Do your research but keep an open mind and ask questions of your oncologist, etc.

I didn't feel comfortable just going "natural", but I do combine many suggestions about diet, exercise, supplements, meditation, etc. that seem to complement conventional treatment for ILC. So I guess I integrate both non-medical/alternative and medical treatment to help me try to keep any recurrences at bay. I did go through chemo, rads, BMX and recon, and am taking daily medication called an anti-hormonal. None of that was especially difficult, but it was tedious and I got through it--without even losing any work time.

Good luck, we are here for you.

Hi Suzy, again--

Try not to let others throw you off guard by sharing anecdotal stories with you right now. People try to be helpful because they don't know how to help us. But often they share misinformation, partial information, or downright wrong information.

I'll never forget my colleague who, early after I found out, told me his ex-wife had breast cancer...I asked him how she was doing hoping he'd tell me some good news and he said she died (!!!!) but then said she "went the all-natural route" for tx and did some treatment in Mexico. Turns out it was years ago she died, but I sure didn't need to hear that as I tried to talk myself off my own cliff, tell myself hopeful stories, and find current research that supported my treatment decisions.

One hopeful point for you is that ILC tends to be a bit less agressive than other sub-types and slower-growing. That knowledge really kept me going in the early days of this new normal.

Hugs,

Claire

everyone does indeed have an opinion. I limited myself to this site and hospital websites. I also took a voice recorder to all my dr. appointments so I could listen later and remind myself of the good outcomes that the dr. forecasted at every visit. I had great friends and colleagues, but they were not in the dr. appointment with me and did not hear what was happening. We all have to become very well-versed in breast cancer very quickly-- and those around us cannot often keep up.... this site is great because everyone has been there-- our experiences are different, but we all know the fear and the uncertainty in the beginning---

Thank you. Went to Dr yesterday and found out I am stage 1 and tumor is 5mm. Smaller than a pea. I go in for MRI next week and they said lumpectomy with radiation and a pill is her recommendation. Mastectomy not some she sees as nessicary in my case. Very relieved and trying to stay positive. Thank you all❤️

Hi @beachw3- I just had a double mastectomy on October 3rd. I was scared as well, and while it hasn't been easy, it also has not been horrible. My best advice is to get your support team ready. My mom came and stayed with us for 25 days, and I needed her every one of those days. Also, a friend of mine set up a website called MealTrain for us and posted it on my Facebook page. Several people brought over meals for our family or sent us gift cards, Uber Eats cards, etc. so we didn't have to worry about cooking/grocery shopping. Be ready to sleep in a recliner if you have one, if not I also bought a big wedge pillow which allows me to basically sit up and sleep in the bed. Get your clothes/pj's ready. They should be button up because the first few weeks it will be difficult to raise your arms. Let me know if you have any other questions, but I promise you will be fine. :)

Hi Beach,

Sorry you have to come back for one more time to kick c's *ss, but you will! I found surgery and immediate reconstruction to be doable and I bounced back pretty quickly, and I hope you do too. I was back in the yoga studio (following my doc's orders not to lie on my stomach, so I modified some poses) in a week, even with my drains in (I hid them in my shorts). I only had drains in for a short time, too. Little to no tissue left to drain from, I guess.

I had little to no pain; the worst part was having to sleep on my back on a wedge pillow for 3 weeks. You might consider ordering one from Amazon and have it ready when you get home. I could do everything else I needed to do in my life, so for me surgery was kind of a non-event other than caring for the incisions and watching for any kind of infection and making those doc appts. I think because I had immediate recon it might have been easier than some? It was 2 and done, I guess.

I hope you'll have an experience like mine, and that this is the end of cancer for you.

Hugs,

Claire

Hi all. I am 45 years old and have ILC. Only one known person in generations of our family has had cancer - my paternal aunt who was 45 years old and had ILC.

I was diagnosed with ILC in early October (on my wedding anniversary) and had my bilateral mastectomy with tissue expanders on Nov 29th (originally scheduled for the 12th but I was unexpectedly severely anemic and had to postpone). My cancer was discovered when my 11 y.o. daughter saw a lump on my chest through my shirt and asked about it. I had been going to regular mamograms and ultrasounds (dense breast). A previous biopsy in 2016 was negative and deemed a cyst. This lump tested positive for cancer. They couldn't recognize it in a mamogram nor ultrasound. When I guided them to this nearly undetectable lump and they finally saw a little something on ultrasound, they suspected a 2cm tumor. In an MRI they saw something on the other side of the same breast which also tested positive and they still expected the original lump to be 2cm.

I received my pathology today. Well, it ends up that I had a 10cm tumor in my (less-than-B-cup-sized) right breast and no one saw it. My four lymph nodes that they removed were clear in the OR test. However, in the pathology, two of the lymph nodes had tumors and the other two had cancer cells. There were also no clear margins with the mastectomy, so the skin on the bottom of the right breast has to be removed and replaced.

The cancer board has decided that I will need Tamoxafin (sp?), chemo, surgery for the skin and then radiation (although the plastic surgeon is lobbying for radiation and then skin surgery). Yesterday I was five days out of surgery and my left breast ballooned up...the drain must have been clogged. And my right side developed red lines and splotching, which the doctor thankfully said was just vascular reaction to the surgery and not a problem. He drained my left breast today but I still look a bit like Dolly Parton on the left and a bit of a train wreck on the right. I couldn't sleep last night, concerned about the swelling. Now I have much bigger fish to fry.

It's been a wild ride that is about to get really crazy. I thought I would share my story thus far in case it helps anyone. I know that reading your stories helps me.

Hi Suzy. How was surgery? Our stats are similar, and I have a biozorb implant, so I wanted to chime in.

You may be back to work by now? I took off only three days and was fine, but geez you will need a supportive bra.

I waited almost six weeks to start radiation. In my case the surgical margins were big so I had only 16 sessions.

Hope that helps. And best wishes.

Really happy my husband has been home to walk our dog etc...

He leaves tomorrow so I will get back to reality. Anxious to get rads started and wondering what pill I will be on.Hoping for minimal side effects.


Any recommendations on things I should get for after radiation? Like clothing or creams? I work at small clothing boutique and hoping to schedule most after work but know there will be a day or two I have to go to work after. Only 5 hours.

Suzy, I'm glad surgery went well for you. Is the second incision under your arm? If so that's from the sentinel node biopsy. If not, maybe it was for the biozorb? But in my case I only had one incision, near the areola.

I worked during radiation too. You should up your protein during RADS, since your cells will be working hard to regenerate. So I had a radiation "go bag" in my car with a small wallet to hold my ID and keys, a cotton T-shirt I could put on without a bra, a couple of KIND high-protein bars, a book to read while waiting, and some Neutrogena cleansing wipes. (Most facilities ask for deodorant to be removed before treatment, and make you leave your purse and clothes in a locker.) And thanks to the ladies on these boards, I got calendula cream from Amazon and put it on twice a day.

There is a thread going called "starting radiation in January 2019," and you might go say hi over there. I found having a "posse" during radiation helped a lot. Also I am posting the instructions I got from Johns Hopkins since so little seems to be written down.

Good luck!
