Heather and I met with the breast surgeon today. We went to get a final game plan for what happens next, now that she is almost done with chemo. She is going to move forward with the double mastectomy, which we expected to hear today. This part has been difficult for Heather. It’s as if The changes to her body she has had to go through weren’t enough, now she has to go through this.
She has two more chemo treatments and then in late October or early November, she will undergo the surgery. On a brighter note, we did find out that she will NOT have to go through radiation treatment!! The doctor said there would be no need for radiation treatment since her lymph nodes came back clear. This is awesome news considering Heather was preparing for 6 more weeks of treatment after her chemo.
