We went yesterday for another consultation and were encouraged by the visit with the doctor. He assured us that a mastectomy was not urgent nor essential at this stage. So we will be opting for breast salvage, and a surgery is scheduled for January 2.
The main issue at this point is discovering what we are dealing with regarding the cell activity the PET scan found in the groin area. We’re hoping to schedule a needle biopsy for next week, before Christmas. If we cannot get a discernible answer from the needle biopsy, she will have to have surgery to remove one of those nodes, which are deep, so it will require a significant surgery. We’re praying that the needle biopsy tells us what we need to know.
