The doctors cut away the remaining lump and removed 7 lymph nodes for testing and the cancer hasn't spread! I'm so unbelieveably happy but i'm not out of the woods yet. He called my cancer ductal carcinoma in situ (stage 0) it could come back and I must go back for checkups and perform regular breast checks as pregnancy can accelarate cancer growth.
Yeah my grandma and grandma's grandma (grandma was succesfully treated) her grandma passed away. The doctor wanted to removed lymph nodes as with my past 2 pregnancies being one after the other, and being pregnant again, there was a chance all those hormones could of accelarated it.
He was actually basically telling me that it most probably has and I was worrying my a$$ off. He only graded after removing them. I won't go into it but i'm actually thinking of suing as I don't believe he did his job properly in diagnosing me and think I should of got a scan or something....
I''m really sore but i'm happy so thats the main thing and I believe everything happens for a reason and now I feel fiercely protective over my unborn baby after the though I may lose him/her
That's probably why he did remove them because of your pregnancies.
Wow so he didn't even get you a mammogram? You need to complain sweets and say you want a mammogram to check the other breast - it'll show up on the mammogram (even if you don't have a lump) as microcalcification.
