Thanks for the lovely hat comments! I think my headache last night was from allergies. My sinuses just ached so after a couple of sudafeds, a zyrtec, and finally 2 Advil (I'm not supposed to take those but got desperate) I finally fell asleep. This morning feel much better.
Traci, My pathology also had the primary IDC and then they found DCIS in the final path. My MO said that it is very common. The biopsy can determine the primary tumor, when they remove it, they frequently find other "debris of DCIS. It makes sense because the IDC originally started out as DCIS until it invaded other tissue. It makes sense that there can be other cancer cells that are in the area, but jet haven't broken out and become invasive. That is just so awesome that your number is zero! Can't get much better than that! These tests are quite specific, especially for those in the low risk and high risk categories. It's just the intermediate scores that they aren't quite sure about. I'm glad that I had the option of an additional test aimed highly at the intermediate score results.
Sandy, hope you are feeling better now.
Poodles, don't feel badly. I just got a letter from Medicare with my summary since May 14 with a note that said that I MAY have to pay $2,300 in copays etc! I sure hope that's not the case, but I haven't paid anything with all the treatments and surgeries. I'd rather pay a little each visit if I"m going to have copays!
Off to meet a friend to get a blow torch for my jewelry. Watch out... I may be lethal with a torch!!!
