Hurrah, progress! All of the lymph nodes free. In for a lumpectomy tomorrow. Can't wait to get on that table! Never thought I would be saying that!

Anyone had a sentinal node biopsy, before a lumpectomy?

I had an MRI on Thursday last week and this showed another lump, same breast, which they think is benign, but they aren't sure, so they took another biopsy on Monday. Rather than proceeding to a lump removal, they cancelled this and yesterday I went in for a lymph node removal. Then I get the results of this and the other biopsy on Monday next week. All this waiting is doing my head in. A last conversation consultant was saying they might get me some chemo to reduce the size before an operation. Just frustrated things seem to be going backwards.
