I’M CLEARED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to see Dr. Patel for my post-op oncology appointment to find out what’s next with treatment beyond the mastectomies. There were, actually, three areas of breast cancer that were found, but none had become invasive. There was no cancer found in the lymph nodes that were removed. Because everything was removed in both breasts, there is NO NEED for further treatment at this time. We caught it super early, eradicated it from my body, and I am DONE!!!! I will still need to see her once a year. She suggested I go back and follow up on the ovarian cyst that got me here in the first place. Lastly, it’s also time for the dreaded colonoscopy. BUT, I AM CLEAR OF BREAST CANCER!!!!!!
