Hi, I also had high grade DCIS, about 7.5 cm and SLN removal to check for spread but thankfully none found. I know its impossible not to worry but it sounds good for now and, even if there has been a small amount of spread outside the ducts, as long as the lymph nodes are clear and you had a mx then they should have got it all anyway.
Good luck, let us know once you have your results x
Most of my scar is quite flat now, the only bits that are puckered are at the beginning (where my cleavage would be if I had one! ) and in my armpit where the sentinel node was removed. I have only just got rid of the soreness there, this week has been the first week when I've been able to wear a bra all day.
It's hard to imagine your arm movement will get back to normal when it feels like the muscles on one side are 2 inches shorter than the other! But you'll get there, I've been gardening today. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.xx
Thank you for replying Suerick
That's great news and wow that was a big area of DCIS !! I'm one week out now and keeping up with exercise though the overhead really hurts and I can only get about 90 degrees. I will persevere.
Also how is your incision, mine looks quite puckered so I'm hoping it will settle.
Have a good weekend xxx
I really hope you get your results soon, I won't tell you not to worry because I know from experience that's impossible. I had a mastectomy on the 18th Jan and sentinel node removed. I had 115mm of high grade dcis(non-invasive) but the sentinel node was clear and will need no further treatment. I didn't have immediate reconstruction as was expecting to have radiotherapy but I don't need that now and am being referred for future reconstruction.
Keep on with the exercises, it really does make a difference, my arm movements are almost back to normal.Sending you best wishes.
