Today was the day I got my results and discussed the plan to kick some cancer butt. It is a good news, bad news type of deal.
Good news – I am going to lose some weight next week. My boobs are about to be medical waste and will be replaced by something perky. The decision has been made to do surgery first due to the results of the MRI (that will follow in the bad news!). There was some talk about just removing the left breast but it was decided to do both. My right one would have boob envy since the new one will not be saggy and always pointing at my feet.
I will start chemo after the surgery.
Bad news – which is not really bad but definitely not good news like getting a boob job. The MRI results showed that my lump now has a friend. A second lump has crashed the party. Because my cancer is so aggressive and determined to make my breast the ‘go to hot spot’ for the radical cells to hang out, the surgeon wants to condemn this joint that used to be chest.
I am so impressed with my medical team. My surgeon has a great sense of humor and seems very accommodating although he nixed the idea of giving me something along the lines of Dolly Parton.
