I had this years annual mammogram and got that draeded letter in the mail. Went back or follow up mammogram, then the biopsy. My gyn dr called and wanted t see me immediately. She said the I have highly aggressive precancerous cells still contained in my milk ducts. Two areas were biopsied. She said that I would need a lumpectomy or a masectomy. Yeterday she met with the breast surgeon and took all of my findings with her. The word yesteday morning is that they would have to remove so much breast tissue and the risk of cancer reoccuring is very high. The breast doctor/surgeon feels that a full masectomy and immediate breast augmentation is the best route. This breast doctor is from the cancer care center. I have an appointment with her next Thursday. I picked my ultrasound and my pathlgy report apart the night before and was not shocked when my doctor called with their conclusion. But my head is realing...I'm on the best end of a bad situation but I have so many questions.... I imagine that this surgery is horrific. I have a desk job and I actually thought that I would be back at my desk in a week. I'm crazy, I realize that now. What is the recovery time? It's just one breast and I am lucky that we found it before it spread. I am class 4c on th Birads scale. It's all new and I am going to trust my doctors, they are excellent.But I am frightened.
