Got the results from the PET scan. Good news is, no sign of cancer showing in my leg bones. I still am having such difficulty walking, but if I keep popping aspirin, I stay mobile. This walking trouble is just another problem that I still have to deal with.
Unfortunately, the scan did show four spots in my lymph nodes under my left arm. My original breast cancer was in my left breast.
Right before I had my double mastectomy in 2014, there was a procedure done on me where dye was injected in the lymph node area. At that time, it showed that there was no obstructions in those nodes which indicated that they were clear, not cancerous. Now, for some reason, lumps have appeared. Crap. But how lucky I am that I had this scan. We weren't even thinking that there might be cancer anywhere else besides my legs, and if my legs hadn't been acting up, we would never have found these new lumps.
Soooo, I had to go to the hospital yesterday and have a biopsy done (which wasn't too horrible or anything, but I did have to have it done in an operating room 'cause they had to pull out a sample core plug from the biggest lump which is 1 inch x 1/2 inch). I will find out the results in about a week. The tech said they may have the info in as little as three days. Whatever, I'm pretty sure it is going to be okay.
And, if not, we will deal with it, right? Been there, done that.
I haven't been dwelling too much on the possibility of trouble ahead, because so many lovely things have been happening. We got another new great-great nephew, Owen William. (jeez, it sounds like we are old as dirt!). Anyhoo, this little guy is a keeper!
Also, spent the afternoon with my wonderful Aunt Kate, who turned 90 years old. She was born on the very same day and year as my late mother. (Mom and Kate were girlfriends, and that is how Mom met Dad). The party was excellent and I got to see a lot of my cousins. It has been forever since we were all together. Such fun.
Okay. I'll close now. But I'll keep ya posted on how this new situation is going to turn out.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
