Yes....I never thought in my entire life that I would have to say those words.
I had my biopsy on Tuesday and was told that the result would come in in 5 - 7 days...at the earliest....today was day 3. My doctor called and asked that I come in.
Basal duct carcinoma....apparently a very common form of breast cancer....but "cancer" nevertheless....I broke down.....but I getting myself back up. I'll be scheduled for a lumpectomy where they will proceed to inject a dye into my lymph nodes etc. to make sure that it hasn't gone elsewhere....this will be within the next week or two....I hope. So at this point I won't be losing a boob...just part of one. Whether chemo and/or radiation is in my future is still up in the air.....but I have cancer.....I don't care what kind/how common/how anything...it's still cancer.
So for tonight....I'm going to enjoy a couple glasses of wine and tomorrow.....I'm going to begin a bit of a "mountain to climb".
Am I scared?...shit yeah!
