Hello please help need some positive encouragement ! I haven't been here for so long . I am a 14 year breast cancer survivor. I get my mammograms and breast Mri and on eve a year blood work . I was a ball of stress waiting for my breast mri results due to taking few days for results unlike mamos. Well make a longer story short the morning of result I was waiting and waiting by phone . Decided to go to my new apts backyard to tan and relax when I started putting tanning oil and went through my neck area and on top of feeling my breast to see if anything was different I bumped into my lump my clavicle area I as a suffer from anxiety etc. and still waiting for Mri result called my breast surgeon , onc, and all I can . My breast surgeon nurse said to come in right away . I zoomed to the hospital the nurse said maybe swollen from something else but right away ordered fna aspiration . " oh and in my way to hospital Jessica calls and Saids everything in your breast mri is fine ". I'm like oh nice but guess what is my coincidence problem now I have a lump side above my clavicle. So they aspirate and I'm hot mess I'm with my mom she looks worried . The pathologist takes more than five minutes that she promised me she would come in and let me know . I know something was up! She comes in with chief pathologist Saids " well looks like atypical cells ( abnormal cells " and we think could be from the breast cancer settling there or other cancer ????? But she kept saying the ultrasound shape of lump didn't look that bad . And top it all off its Memorial Day weekend and waiting dayyyyyssss for final result so they can also compare to my slides in 2002!
I am distraught I am 40 and my bday is Wednesday I was thinking soooo crazy like I didn't want to even know ! This stress thing is very ugly , specially with me suffering from severe depression and anxiety ( even my meds are not working ). Ever since Thursday I have started to actually felt sick physically when I would have been fine if I got a call from Jessica and told me earlier that my breast mri was fine ! 😕😕🙄
