Well today could've been a great day, but not so much. I went to see the surgeon for my follow-up. To get right to the point, I need more surgery. More mammograms, possibly more wires, and definitely more surgery. A re-excision, they're not sure they got everything out.
I was so looking forward to being declared cancer-free today. I wore LiveStrong yellow to the appointment. I bounded up the stairwell 2 steps at a time, I joked with the nurse. I left crying.
I'm ready to be done with this.
The surgeon and nurse both looked at my incision and remarked at how beautifully I was healing, how quickly, they were stunned. Then they both said, "Ah, too bad we're going to have to cut there again." Ouch.
On the upside, my new jersey arrived today. Fat Cyclist.
