It is an agressive cancer. Hopefully it is contained in one area, but they still don't know about the lymph nodes. I will be having an MRI. I'm supposed to have something implanted in the arm or shoulder so that when they do chemo they just stick the needle in that. They worry about veins collapsing when you get intravenus so often or something and that is the purpose of having the surgery to have that thingy implanted. Might be going two or three times a week for chemo. :shock:

Let's see, there was talk of chemo, maybe a lumpectomy or breast removal, but they don't know yet what we are dealing with, so tests coming up.

I'm so sorry Ariel. I had a roommate that had breast cancer several years ago. The treatment was rough, but they got it all and she is fine now. I'm confident you will be too. :hug:

A former student of my had the port put in just below her neck for chemo. She is doing great now. The port comes out after the chemo is over. She is happy and enjoying life as always. You will come through whatever challenges you need to face.

You'll get through this, poppet. You're a strong woman, even though you may not feel like it some times. You can do it. Don't ever give up.
