About Me: Female, 52, Atlanta, GA, member since Sep 2012
5 weeks post op today 10/1/12. Dx ~june 6 went to Dr. after lymph nodes swelled and ran low grade fever for days. Noticed lump, assumed cyst. Indeed, it was but ultrasound highlighted increased circulation area under cyst. DCIS. Needle biopsy was done to see if it
[More] was indeed cancer. After confirmation was made I thought since area was so small liquid nitrogen by intervention radiologist. Called all over country, only single Dr.in the entire country does this for Breast Cancer. Anyway I was like a dog after a bone seeking this procedure instead of seeking nipple and skin sparing surgeons. Went with a local surgeon and PS to begin reconstruction immediately after.
Reconstruction going well, 50cc's at a time LOL!
Pleased that reconstruction will be finished before Husband returns from Afghanistan. Praying for wisdom.
