Geri Posted May 10, 2007 Share Posted May 10, 2007 Decided a new thread was needed here as the other one was getting really long with all your wonderful good wishes. I saw the surgeon today and the radiologist read my MRI (had new one last Monday) and found that there is another lump. He insisted on doing another ultrasound right then (bless his heart!) and then assured me that in his humble opinion he feels it's benign, at the same time he arranged for another biopsy tomorrow "to make sure I'm right" and then only because cancer has already been diagnosed. The most news worthy bit of all this that I'm planning to take part in a research study that will take place along with the standard tx of lumpectomy and radiation. This will be cyroabalation to freeze the tumor and hopefully boost the imune system against any future breast cancer cells (in theory it sounds almost like a vacination). While this is very early days for this research in women it has proven effective in mice - don't know if I want to follow a mouse but what the hell, if it doesn't help me it may help future bc survivorship if not cancer in general and the risks seem fairly small compared with the possible gain. So, that's where I stand right now. There's still much more clear in my ribbon than pink and, if I may, I'd rather stay here than go pink.......you guys know me too well and I don't want to start from scratch breaking in another group to my weird sense of humor. I promise I won't keep writing about the pink cancer, clear is what we're here for so assume that as long as I'm posting I'm still on the green side of the sod.....don't worry I'm not going to let the pink one take me, that would just pis_ me off big time!
