Hi Helenann, I'm so pleased to hear you now have a date to have your tissue expander replaced-fingers and toes are crossed for you that all goes ahead on 12th August. I had been thinking a lot lately, about tomorrow-as it was last 20th July when I had the 1st mammogram that lead to a call-back, which lead to the biopsy confirming Grade 2 Lobular. It's a year tomorrow that my ball started rolling. However, I am fine-and still letting Letrozole do it's stuff before I know what my surgery options are. I'm going away for a long week-end on the Bank Holiday week-end...to the same place I went last year, the week after my diagnosis. I won a Winnie-The-Pooh on the boardwalk, playing one of those stupid games:) and he has been sleeping with me ever since. I suppose it's fair to say he's been giving me comfort this last year:). Please keep us updated on the rest of your journey....sending you mucho hugs for 12th August. xxxx

This afternoon I was given the results of the Sentinel Node Biopsy. 2 Nodes had been removed and thankfully no cancer found. Relieved is an understatement. So now, I can relax over the next few weeks prior to surgery. Admission 12th September, with smx/DIEP reconstruction the day after. I know the recovery will be tough but take each day as it comes and do as I am told is exactly what I shall do .
