Hello pink ribbon sisters. , and also hopefully some sisters in Christ. I found a lump on the breast wall of my left breast on 6/6. After a lot of patience, 2 ultrasounds, a mammogram, and finally a needle biopsy, I was diagnosed on 8/20/2015 with triple positive, ER+,PR+,Her2+ malignant breast cancer in the left milk duct, measuring about 1.3 cm. I am now waiting for a surgical consult in just over 3 weeks and a 2nd opinion oncologist appointment next week. I'm worried foremost about the amount of time that has lapsed and the chance of the spread to the brain, liver, lungs, bones, nodes, you name it. I'm also not sure about surgery, reconstruction, chemo, etc. I know I'll get more answers once I see the oncologist next week but this waiting, and time passing me by, is enough to make me crazy. I've been through 3 very serious, life-altering situations this year, and now I am triple (3) positive for this. I know that Peter denied God 3 times, and then God tested Peter 3 times. I feel like there is a message here for me. Maybe I've got a message to send. A purpose in all of this. Maybe breast cancer awareness through survival is my purpose.
Anyone have any insight on the time lapse and the rapid spread of this lovely Her2, please share. Any other advice, comments, encouragement will always be appreciated.
