Hi ladies. Well , had my mastectomy and reconstruction 2 weeks ago . All went well and am pleased with the way it went although obviously am still feeling bruised and tender and a bit tired. However had results yesterday following the removal of the sentinel node during surgery and unfortunately this showed traces of cancer for which I am now going to need further treatment. Needless to say I was a bit floored yesterday and couldn't take in all the information and options. Everyone was great and have given me time to take it all in before deciding. Further surgery under the armpit to remove further nodes is one option( which I don't really fancy) and obviously chemo and or radio therapy ( will know more about this after consultation with the oncologist ) . Another option though they have offered is a trial running called POSNOC. This looks at treatment to the armpit following surgery. I wondered if any one else has heard of this or even participating in it.? Would be grateful for anyone's thoughts. Wishing everyone a good day Karen xx
