Today we had the sentinel node biopsy. The preliminary test came back negative for cancer in the lymph nodes, but we're awaiting the full testing results in 7 days. The preliminary test is 98% accurate, though. Fingers, toes, arms, arms, and legs crossed.
It feels like I got knifed in the armpit. Therefore I'm glad it's the weekend do I get a break from tests and docs do that I can recover from the minor surgery.
Next week is more testing and meeting more docs. They found another questionable area in my other breast via MRI so that means I need an ultrasound and possibly a biopsy done with local anesthesia. I meet with another oncologist and a plastic surgeon. So I'll be running around like a chicken with its head cut off again.
This face helps me through this. (and my son's face too)
