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

I got nodes from my first & only mammogram!

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

No comment from her….  So this year after some research I found an imaging lab who was willing to check things with just an ultrasound instead of a mammogram…

So I did that this year… When the report came back, 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…UGH

I also mentioned the pneumothorax that I got from the biopsy, which apparently happens regularly if you are small breasted and 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… YAY! 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…

(Biography chatter:from my Author Central page on Amazon-Grove Health Science is a series of 12 books now!) Hi...I'm Sari Grove...Sari sounds like Mary...Grove is the last name I took from my husband, 'cause it is a really nice name, & he was very very good looking, & I married him, & my maiden name, the name I grew up with, was "Slatt", which could be turned into all sorts of unfortunate words, which is why when I was looking for a mate, I sought someone with a cool last name...(I cannot tell you how many totally worthy men I had to ignore due to their last names being unmelodic or otherwise unsuitable...) Grove Canada is a pen name, mostly because when I needed a web address, I could not get Grove.com or even grove.ca, so I just got GroveCanada, due to a serious lack of imagination in that moment...It stuck, so I still use it...I thought this time, if I used Grove Canada as a pen name, that maybe you might look up my blog online, at GroveCanada.ca, & enjoy the freshness of getting information from the horse's mouth, up to the minute, rather than the instant obsoleteness that a book creates...Like a car depreciates as soon as you buy it-a book is old as soon as it is published...For a Virgo perfectionist, this inability to easily update, with a new chapter, with new research, causes me constant worrisome self-abnegating, consternation... I use those dot dot dot things, the etcetera symbol, at the end of my sentences, as a habit-you will always know it is me writing, you will always pause at the end of a sentence to think for a moment, you will remember that poetry is beautiful, & you will take everything I say with a giant grain of Pink Himalayan salt(since the grammatical error will irk you into that state of skepticism)! Love & Hugs, Sari ps. I became a Christian at the age of 21, which may seem like a non sequitur, & though my faith is decent my works may not really do justice to that title-but I thought I'd mention it, since my first name Sari always seems to force an assumption about my background-and though you would be right to assume that it tends to be a Jewish name, you might not be right in assuming that that is what I am going to sound like when I expound on some of my karmic principles or other ethical compasses I have developed...Not that I have done away with my past, it is just I have iced the cake with the new updated version-so if you wrong me, I may just turn the other cheek(New), instead of doing the eye for an eye thing back at you!(old)...
