I then had surgery (lumpectomy and nodes removed), chemo and radiation.
Please know that you aren't alone. You CAN do this. We were all in your shoes at some point. Waiting will not change anything. These tumors usually take a very long time to grow.
Lots of gals have chemo first to shrink the tumor then surgery. My yearly mammogram missed my tumor, then I found it. Grrrr.
Prayers and Hugs. Let us know if we can help in any way.
