Hello all you lovely ladies
Just want you to know that i have had 2 lumpectomies but did not get clear margin so had a mx on 23rd June. My tumour was grade 3 invasive 61mm and all 18 nodes removed were positive for cancer yet both my bone and CT scans were clear.
So high node involvement does not mean it has to have spread.
Good luck with your treatment and stay positive
So sorry to here about your results, I can't really say anymore then what others have said. Its so difficult, sending you much love Gules xx
Hi Mac, im so sorry that you have received such devastating news. It must be very hard to get a grip of such difficult information. My heart goes out to you and sending you lots of positive vibes and caring thoughts. Remember we are all here for each other, were a exclusive club of amazing loving ladies so keep posting and we can support you every step of the way xxxx
Oh dear Mac
So sorry to hear your results - positive thoughts though - They now know what they are dealing with. You will probably not have to wait too long. Mastectomy is the ultimate way to get rid of the Beast.
devastating i know but cry away and gentle hugs#we are all hear to support and listen
so sorry the results were not what expected or wanted. I do understand how you feel and the worry and waiting at this time is the worst. Initially I was told i 'just' needed a WLE but no clear margins and node involvement meant I had to have a Mastectomy and all my nodes removed My tumour was 9cm all invasive and I had a total of 9 out of 23 nodes that had cancer. I had chemo and rads and hormone treatment as my cancer was ER+. I also had staging scans before my treatment plan. that was just over 5 years ago, at at the time I was totally distraught. I got through it all though and I am sure you will too. The treatment these days is fantastic and you will get loads of support on this site. Just take one day at a time. xxx
So sorry to hear that MAC, what a horrible shock and I wish it could have been better but as the other ladies have said, hang in there. It's more treatment than you were expecting but it is still only a small fragment of time in your life and worth it to get this damn disease beaten.
Sending you big hugs and every possible good wish
Got my results today. My 9mm lump turned out to be 3cm of invasive and 4 cm of non-invasive (I think that's what the consultant said) , plus it was in 8/15 lumph nodes so I am now going to need a mastectomy and chemo. Need to have bone scans and MRI to work out which order that will happen in.
I feel really numb. This was so unexpected.
