On the advice of tbh I have decided to start this thread on my wifes ordeal with her recently discovered breast cancer.
I originally posted this in the "worried about lump" thread and I think if would be unfair to continue on that thread because not all lumps are cancerous.
We were in the hospital yesterday for two scans, a bone scan and a CAT scan. We also seen the social worker asigned to her and to be honest I was glad we talked with her.
We got the bone scan results yesterday and it was all clear . They did not have the CAT scan results and sent us home.
After an anxious night they called her this morning with the best Christmas present that we could hope for under the circumstances ALL CLEAR on the CAT scan. We hugged and cryed for about an hour after the call and told all our family. At least we can enjoy Christmas with our babies who for the first time this year are very much into Santa.
The road ahead is very much clear now and we know what's ahead. She will get her surgery on the 5th of Jan and 5 months (at least) of Chemo 3 weeks later. Followed by radiation theropy and hormone treatment thrown in there aswel.
I would like to thank all the posters from the "worried about lump" thread for all there kind words.
I will post udates as time goes by on her condition and ordeal, It has been the longest and most stressfull 2 weeks in my life so far and I encourage others in the same situation to come on and let us know your ordeal.
Merry Christmas to one and all.
