So you get bad news during your oncologist appointment…(reasons why he/she could be wrong)…

I got nodes from my first & only mammogram!

Tissue tore & 3 months later oncologist says she feels nodes in my breast…I said yes I know, they weren’t there until I did a mammogram…

No comment…This year after some research I found an imaging lab who was willing to check things with just an ultrasound no mammogram…

So I did that this year…So then the report comes back that there are 2 “trails” that weren’t there in the first ultrasound…I said yes, because the first ultrasound was Before the core needle biopsy where they punctured twice & suctioned out lump tissue dragging two straws out…What they were seeing in this year’s ultrasound were the two trails from last year’s biopsy…

I also mentioned the pneumothorax that I got from the biopsy, which apparently happens if you are small breasted, the lump is close to the chest wall…

The needle can pierce the “pleura” by accident…Then for 2 months you drink water & it goes into your lungs…Pneumothorax…

Sounds like a Dr. Seuss animal…So no more biopsies for me either…Today I investigated something called a Bio Signature testing where they tell you all the hormone levels in your body…Am running out of diagnostic tools that don’t hurt me more…All I am saying is take it all with a grain of salt…

Trust Yourself…They always overdiagnose since they are only really looking for bad things & if you only look in the sewer you may miss the sky…

They neglected to mention the lump is smaller than last year…I just noticed it myself when I was trying to read the images…Gee…That was kinda important news…

Stick with it kid, it gets better…

Read the last sentence in this post on WDDTY…I have had to reread it several times…It means, I think, that surgery, if the DCIS becomes invasive, reduces the risk of recurrence within 10 years, but does not change the risk of death…Or something like that…I’d have to look up the original study they are working from…But it clarifies the hunch that I had too…Surgery just cuts off the tip of the iceberg…Either way, a systemic rebalancing of hormones, antiparasitics, & exercise need to happen…For me, surgery would get in the way of the detox because it is hard to detox if you have to repair damage from cutting…
