Saw the doctor today, and because of the size of one of my lymph nodes and past history they are going to do a surgical biopsy on Thursday. They are just going to take the biggest one and see what pathology say's before taking the next step. It will be done as an out patient procedure so I'll be home Thursday afternoon. And then because of the location of the swollen nodes and history of breast cancer in the family I'm scheduled for a mammogram on Oct. 5th to get a baseline image. Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts and prayers.
I have to admit as I was leaving the doctors I was getting a little weepy and worried. I had it in my mind that the nodes would go back down by now and the surgeon would send me on my merry way. So now I find the worry creeping back in. I just keep reminding myself it is what it is... I have no control over this so freaking out will not help me. I have pre-op on Monday will work Tues & Wed. and then Surgery on Thurs.
I'll continue to update as I know more.
