Slow down, and breathe… March 15th, 2010

As Larry and I were driving to yet another day at the doctors we questioned if moving so fast to have surgery was the right decision. It had only been 5 days. We didn’t even have a second opinion. But when you hear “Cancer” you think death, act fast and get it out of your body! We met with the medical oncologist, the chemo specialist. After another full 2 hours of cancer explanations she gave me the best advice and news of the week. Hold off on the surgery; give yourself some time to breathe. One week or two will not change anything. Ahhhh. Her news, she didn’t see why we had to decide about radiation or pregnancy and mastectomy. Chemo would happen before any of this. And maybe neither choice will be needed. There is no increase in your survival if you terminate your pregnancy. Go get a second opinion. So we did. And a better outlook was given.
