Saw doctor yesterday. R breast clear. L breast as detected 2 cancerous lumps plus a node that has metasticised. Doctor had taken all 17 nodes from the L underarm and breast tissue. Just as well as she would have had to readmit me to take the rest once the cancerous node was identified. She has cut a clear area around all the trouble spots so may have contained the cancer. However she is doing a series of scans to be sure. Today was CT of the chest and pelvic areas. I was unable to have the iodine injection for the test as I have reacted to it on an earlier occasion. But apparently they can still read the scan without it. Next Monday we do the bone scan. So the future treatment is still unsure. Was bold enough to go into BUnnings with Mike afterwards and wander through the plant department – I loved that but was not really ready for the real world so came home exhausted! Found out My garden won the Council conpetition for native gardens in September – will be a blast to spend the $200.00 voucher on more natives! Hope I can do more than wander around it in a few weeks.
