The biopsy did come back positive for breast cancer. So, even though this cancer is located in the muscle, it is actually breast cancer. Most likely the original cancer continuing to spread. My oncologist has to look at the original pathology report and compare it to this one to be sure. Sometimes you can have a second breast cancer, but most likely this is not.
Disappointed, discouraged, relieved, sad, numb, and unusually calm all at the same time.
I meet with my surgeon this Thursday. The incision looks fine but I have some bruising now and my chest is starting to hurt a bit more. Kind of weird that this feels worse 4 days later.
Next week I meet with the radiologist to discuss beginning radiation again.Then, I meet with my oncologist to discuss whatever it is he is going to discuss with me :)
Chris and I did notice that when I began taking this new drug ( Arimidex) the tumor was beginning to get smaller after just one week. We are hopeful that this is a good match for me. However, it seems to have made my blood pressure rise again so I may have to go back on a BP med. which I am also disappointed about.
We are praying for wisdom & discernment ( for all involved) so the proper treatments will be chosen to put this cancer "back to sleep".
