Great news today! Not only was it benign, there were not even any atypical cells at all to worry about. =) Thanks y'all for all the support and all the prayers. I didn't realize how scared I was until I heard the news and was overcome with relief. Love you gals!

One step at a time, one day at a time..... My surgeon told me if a woman had to have breast cancer, DCIS, caught early, was the kind to have. Keeping my fingers crossed that it is not cancer, and that all goes well. I'd be frustrated, upset, angry, sad, miserable, whatever, too. Good luck...

Thoughts and prayers are with you. Take it one day at a time. I swear the not knowing is the hardest part of this journey. Once you know what you are dealing with you can plan and conquer anything. Keep fighting!
That is so frustrating!! But don't get too far ahead of yourself....one step at a time, get the biopsy done so that you know if it's something to be concerned with or not. I agree, unbelieveable for that to happen so soon after chemo is finished! Hopefully it isn't anything, but so important to find out!!
I can certainly understand being overwhelmed at this point, but try not to get too discouraged yet, and keep us updated on what's going on!!

Hi all! It's been awhile since I've been on here. I was trying to pretend everything was back to normal I guess and I didn't want to think about it for a while. I finished chemo Jan 3, and then finished my 33 radiation treatments March 23. This week started all of my follow-up visits. Was released from my radiation oncologist on Tuesday. Today, I had a mammogram done ordered by my surgeon before my follow-up with him on May 9, and May 4 is my follow-up with my regular oncologist. I've started working out again and been running for the past month to get ready for my first 5k on May 7. Unfortunately, the Dr. at the Imaging Center called me in after my mammo and told me that now I need a biopsy of my OTHER breast! It seems I now have a cluster of microcalcifications that she is concerned about that weren't there 8 months ago. She said that because of the formation of the cluster and my history of breast cancer that it's a fair chance of being DCIS. My concerns are this. If it's possible to have new cancer pop up this soon after chemo, then it seems to have survived the chemo. What are the chances of it popping up somewhere else in the body? Or maybe I'm just freaking out...I don't think I can do this all again.
