I had my appointment at Breast Clinic yesterday and the lump is malignant as are the maxillary lymph glands! I was told that they want to keep chemo in reserve for OC recurrences, the tumour is oestrogen sensitive but the option of oestrogen suppressants would not destroy the tumour and is usually only offered to the older patients who are not fit enough for surgery. The recommended option is a lumpectomy and removal of the lymph glands. I was offered 27 Dec but will still be in London so the next mutilation will take place on Jan 11th followed by daily radio therapy.
The op will be done in York followed by radiotherapy in Leeds at St James!
I am pragmatic but not exactly looking forward to New Year.
Happy Christmas all!
