On April 14 I posted that I was waiting for breast biopsy report. Had biopsy of both breasts. Left side shows DCIS stage 0 (ductal carcinoma in situ); cancer is contained in mammary duct and has not spread at all. Right side was negative for cancer. The next day I saw OB/GYN doctor for vaginal bleeding; she did a biopsy of uterus which showed early endometrial cancer grade one of the uterus. Sometimes when it rains it pours. Because both of these cancers are caught early, the outlook is positive. On May 12 I'll have lumpectomy of breast and removal of uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries. I am so glad to have both surgeries same day. One time for anesthesia and one night in hospital. If all final pathology reports are same as initial reports, I will be around for a long time. I will need radiation to breast but no additional treatment for uterine cancer.
God is good! My DH has been wonderful going to all appointments, etc. and laughing and crying with me. Our DD has also gone to appointments with us and is a 6 year survivor of same breast cancer so she is a great mentor and support person. Since the initial shock wore off, we have been doing well. We just want to get the show on the road and be back home to begin recovery. I try to spend my energy on being positive and not the negative.
Last post I mentioned my sis having same cancer. She will have bilateral mastectomies with reconstruction on May 20. We both wish we lived closer to each other and do this on the buddy plan but she is in Kentucky. We will be together in heart.
Thanks to all of you for your concern and prayers. Will post again after surgery and I'm back home.
