Pathology Report is in:
No residual invasive cancer, very tiny focus of DCIS (1/2 mm) Four nodes removed, all came back negative!!!! This is the best possible news after the initial biopsy
Tomorrow we will talk to the Oncologist to see what the plan is for chemo and radiation. We did find out that the type of cancer is Estrogen Receptive Positive, which means she qualifies for the drug Tamoxifen, which is a hormone given everyday for 5 years.
This is great news for us today regarding the cancer residual not being invasive, however, it is bitter sweet hearing that the cancer type came back as Estrogen Positive because one of the effects is that we will not be able to have kids for at least 5 years.
