I recently was diagnosed with DCIS (Ductal Carcinoma In Situ) of the right breast. This has all happened very quickly. 3/31- mammogram ordered 4/9 - mammogram 4/17 - additional views mammogram/ based on results, biopsy ordered 4/23 - right breast biopsy 4/24 - Pathology report - DCIS BREAST CANCER 4/30 - Surgical Consult 5/2 - 2nd surgical consult/ sonogram/ surgery scheduled 5/5 - Segmented mastectomy
I've blogged the experience on my other site using my "blog monkey" who presents the events in a detached manner.
Everything in my life has brought me to this point, prepared me for this fight against the breast cancer, which I will beat.
Just thought I'd share so if anyone else out there has been diagnosed with the same, you're not alone and DCIS is beatable! misstootsieapbt.spaces.live.com/
