Putting Off the Inevitable

It has been quite a while since my last post.  I have been putting off a lot of stuff.  Not thinking about it does not make it go away.  I am concerned about the "rare cancer" possibly caused by breast implants.    Yes, I do have implants which cause pain and discomfort.  Also, I have been worrying alot about a lymph node found on my last mammogram.  I have sought a second opinion, but was not very content with the doctor's opinion.  My luck has always been that if there is the slightest possibility of a problem, then I will have the problem.  Anyway, I need to go to another doctor and have this checked out.  I am very concerned and have put this off for some time.  I just needed to express my thoughts.

Thanks for listening,

Going Out Tonight

We are going out tonight to promote our business at a local C & W club in Mingus, TX.  Everywhere I go I run into ladies who are affected in someway by breast cancer.  It could be a mother, sister, aunt, or just a really good friend.   The stories are heartbreaking but still show that glimmer of hope that so many ladies are fighting this terrible disease.   We try to give love and support where ever we go.   We want to provide a place for women to ask questions or give comments about their experiences.   Also, the Cowgirls in Pink store hopes to provide items that will make them feel better as they take this cancer journey.  Hope to have a good time too.   Wanda at Cowgirls in Pink

Waiting to See New Doctor

I am planning to see a new doctor in Dallas.   The lymph nodes are still visible on my ultrasound and I am concerned.  My other doctor was not worried because it is small , but 5 yrs ago my cancer was small nodules in the breast tissue.   I chose to have a masectomy because the breast would have been very deformed and slight. Additional cancer that did not show up on the ultrasound was found in the extracted tissue.   Because of this even small nodes in my breast area concern me.  I cant believe that I can go right back to day 1 with cancer and still have the same feelings.       Wanda at Cowgirls in Pink

Waitin for results

I had to get a recheck sonogram of my right breast on Monday.   Have not gotten official results but I suspect that the lymph nodes that were detected have grown.   I am a little afraid and my world is spinning.    I really hate waiting for the results.
