My Update.....

Jun 30, 2010 - 36 comments

As some of you know, I found a lump in my breast several weeks ago. I had a lumpectomy on Thursday and got my results yesterday, unfortunatly they weren't what I was hoping for. The mass was cancer and I need to have another surgery to remove some lymphnodes to have them tested to make sure it didn't spread. I have an appointment on Tuesday with the surgeon and i'll know more about what steps need to be taken then. I'll keep you all updated when I know more. For those of you who knew, thank you for your prayers, those who didn't, all prayers are welcome.

My Love to All

I am sorry you are going through this and am sending many prayers your way. My auntie had breast cancer and a double mastectomy 3 years ago and is doing absolutely great. She has never been better in her words. So I am positive everything will be just fine for you.

Oh Lori, I am just seeing this now.  I am sorry hon, this must be very scary for you.  But remember that breast cancer is not what it once is highly curable now and the majority do great!  I know you will beat it and you know I will be keeping you in my prayers. Love ya girl, and good luck with the surgery.

I am so sorry to hear about this...Ive been going through so much on my end I havent been on that much!! I will keep you in my thoughts and in my prayers...I will cross everything possible and hope and pray as hard as I can that everything will pan out!! A very close friend of mine beat the please...the best and most important thing is to try and force yourself to remain positive!!! Mentally is just as important, if not more, than physically, to remain strong and focused!!! Optimism is difficult when faced with such a huge and scary thing....but when my friend went through it the doctors always said over and over that her mental state, her mind, her thoughts, were so extremely important in her battle and she kicked it!!! She has been cancer free, god bless, for almost 4 months now! Fighting cancer is so is so physically and emotionally draining! But the best treatment is that in which all areas are being treated...your body, your mind....etc. They called it the whole body approach!! She actually had yoga as part of her well as meditation! "The best cure for the body is a quiet, strong and peaceful mind", is what they always preached to her! I wish you the best sweetie...cancer stinks but I believe, now a days, we are starting to win the battle with some types! Its not takin as many lives that it did even just 5 years ago so I will remain very hopeful for you and any other women out there facing this demon!! TONS AND TONS OF POSITIVE THOUGHTS, ENERGY, LOVE, SUPPORT, ENCOURAGEMENT AND PRAYERS ARE BEING SENT YOUR WAY!!!! Go get em girl!!!

Thank you all so much. I went to the surgeon on Tuesday, turns out I have 2 different kinds of cancer in the breast, he didn't give me a lot of info because he doesn't specialize in it so I have appointment set up for a radiation specialist on July 19 and with the oncologist on July 23, so i'm hoping to know more then. For now i'm heading out on Sunday for our family vacation, I sooooo need it right now, i'm going to try to leave things behind and enjoy my husband and kids for the week and face reality when we get home. I'll continue to update as I know more. Please keep your prayers coming.

Love and Hugs

Update.... Had both my appointments, surgery is on hold for now, my incision started to bleed about 2 weeks ago. On Friday the oncolgist did a culture and started me on antibiotics in case it's an infection. I have an appointment tomorrow with the surgeon so I should know more then. Just my luck i'd hit a roadblock!! All in all I had a wonderful vacation!! Thank you all again for your support and prayers.

Love & Hugs

You are all such amazing ladies! Your continued support through everything, even not associated with TTC, has been been a blessing. Yet another update....I made my decision to have a bilateral mastectomy, my surgery is scheduled for Monday. They'll remove lymph nodes at the same time, depending on if the nodes are positive or negative will determine the next steps in treatment. I admit, i'm scared to death but I know that i'm doing the right thing. I will keep you all updated as I know more. Keep praying.

Love to all

Hi Lori,  I'm not sure if our paths have crossed on medhelp, but I have been following your story.  Just wanted to let you know that I will be praying that your surgery is a success and that your lymph nodes are cancer free.

I hope you have a very speedy recovery.

Hello Lori,
i'm so sorry to hear about your news. Last year,  I had surgury to have a lump removed and luckily it wasn't anything. .  . Sending my prayers to you. xoxo

Hi everyone. Well surgery went well. The nodes we're negative, which made my day. I'm taking things day by day. Recovery may take a bit longer because I had a bad reaction from a dye they used during surgery. I have up and down moments which I expected. The support i'm receiving is amazing and so helpful to my recovery. I should know soon about chemo and then i'll start reconstructive surgery, it's going to be a long road but at the end of this journey i'll be healthy and thats the most important thing right now. Thanks to all of you for standing by me through this, your such wonderful friends. I'll continue to keep you updated with my progress.

Love to all
