My Breast Cancer Journey Update … July 31, 2014

My Breast Cancer Journey Update, July 31, 2014. I saw my Oncologist, today. I am so angry, and upset, with him. All of this time, I was led to believe that if my surgeon was able to remove ALL of my Cancer tumor (which she was); and if the pathology report of the lymph nodes, that were removed, proved negative (which they are) … that I would not need any chemotherapy, or radiation. Now, today, he is going to tell me that there is one more test that needs to be done; and it is some kind of special test where a specialty lab, examines the tissue (that was removed) – the genes, in the tissue, to be specific … to see if any Cancer Cells were awakened, from a dormant state, etc. If any Genes were awakened, then he strongly suggested that I have chemo, and/or radiation; otherwise there will be a chance for this Cancer to return in either the lungs, liver, kidney, etc. Get the drift? Oh, and, of course, he kept telling my sister, and I, it will be MY choice on having chemo, and/or radiation, or not; if the Cancer is found, to be positive, in my genes. Oh, and the pills they keep mentioning to me; I will need to be on them, once I start, for, at least, 10 years.  😦
