I had an appointment this morning to see my breast surgeon after I'd found something suspicious...again. You can only imagine what thoughts were running through my head after my recent journey through breast cancer.
Things like, 'I CAN'T go through this again!' 'This is horrible!' etc. etc. Cancer recurrence is always in the back of your mind after you've been diagnosed once before. I do take medicine on a daily basis to reduce the risk. But I know there are no guarantees.
Now, my breast surgeon is also a breast cancer survivor so she is very understanding and full of compassion. She told me it was wise that I'd made an appointment to see her if I even suspected anything at all was wrong. Turns out what I was feeling is from the effects of all those radiation treatments causing my scars to thicken and become lumpy. The doctor likened it to the skin of an orange.
So, Praise God I am fine and have nothing to worry about! Believe me, I'm one thankful chick...answered prayer rocks!
