… no more cancer.
The surgeon called today around 5, just before the work week came to a close. The tissue that was removed on Wednesday has good margins. I am cancer free, she said. If I want to have mastectomy at some point in the future, she respects that, but for now there’s no need for additional surgery. And I still have a breast.
Of course, I asked how much tissue she removed this second go-around. She wouldn’t say. Said what’s important is that the cancer is gone, which tells me she took the conservative approach and took out a lot. My guess, anyway. I’ll know for sure when I get the pathology report when we meet for a followup appointment next week.
Meanwhile, onward and (hopefully) upward. Next on the agenda is an oncologist, radiologist and (happily) my holistic physician.
Thanks for being there.
