Diagnosis finally!

I met with the surgical oncologist today. I really loved her. So grateful to get someone I feel good about. My diagnosis is Stage IIA. I'm very RELIEVED to not be stage III.  We have decided to do chemotherapy first and then surgery and radiation. They will need to take the whole left breast because there are two smaller tumors in addition to the 4.3 cm one. I still have time to decide about the right one. All in all - a pretty positive day. My cousin Ann (a breast cancer survivor) and my husband were both with me today. It was really great to have the support. Monday i meet with the radiology oncologist and the medical oncologist to work out a schedule. Next week Thursday i will get my port put in. Tuesday I will get my hair cut really short. Things are moving along.

Vanessa,

I am relieved for you that you have more information and you can start making plans for the treatment. It is the not knowing and waiting that can make it so much worse. Kick it. Hugs and prayers to you and the family.
