Thanks so much for letting us know ALL the GOOD news. What great results and NO chemo is a real plus. Sometimes we don't hear and any help we were able to give just pass it on!! I've found it is easy to do, in fact to not encourage or share with someone who is going through something you have is impossible!! I hope the "girls"continue to fill on target and all continues to go as predicted. Blessings to you!

First of all, thank you to everyone and many thanks for all of your support. It came at the perfect time. I know I have been MIA, but the stress got to be too much and any time I could have alone to myself, I took advantage of. I wanted to update everyone on my progress since I haven't posted since October. I had my bilateral mastectomy with expanders on October 28th. The node was clean... YEAH!!!. amazingly enough I lost over 10 pounds... it's that last 10 pounds I tell ya :-) I have been healing nicely and the "new girls" are coming along fine. I have two fills left and then I will wait for the "final" (hopefully) surgery. Now for the good news.... When I met with my oncologist, I was given the dubious task to decide if I wanted Chemo or not. This has to be the hardest decision I have EVER had to make. I opted for the Oncotype DX test. When we recieved the results (finally on December 2) we decided that, given my number, the benefits I would recieve from chemo were shadowed and out weighed by the risks I would be opening myself up to. So on Dec. 2nd I had the injection to kill my ovaries and started tamoxifen. I will be having the BRCA test done next year as well since my mom was diagnosed and I am only 41.

I just wanted again to say thank you and I hope I can provide support to others as well. It has been a VERY scary journey the last 2 months and I am ready to resume life.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
