Got my pet/ct scan back and although it isn’t in the nodes it is in my sternum so that put me at stage 4. Luckily it isn’t anywhere else so I feel lucky. Chemo starts Friday and my insurance approved me for a second opinion which is Tuesday. Let the healing begin!

Thank you for your words. I'm just trying to figure out how to process this.

Hi Lisa:  It really is a scary and horrible time.  The waiting is the worst!  I was diagnosed about three weeks ago.  It is only now I am beginning to function again.  I had my chemo port put in on Monday and today I had a PET scan.  On the 19th I am getting a second opinion at Slone Kettering Hospital in New York.  They are one of the leaders in triple negative breast cancer in the nation.  Another is MD Anderson in Texas.  I would really suggest that you get a second opinion from a center that specializes in Breast Cancers.  I will still get my treatment here in Michigan, but I will have input from more than one place.  Ask your doc to give you something like Ativan to help with your anxiety.  Hang in there!
