I've had on my research hat lately. I've got my original tumor stuff going off to Genome Labs in Ca to determine the agressiveness of the original tumor cells and the sentinel node path is off to Dr. David Page at Vanderbilt the leading pathologist in breast cancer. Also found out that after a sterotactic biopsy or with lobular type cells some dead cells are transported to the lypmh nodes and just happen to be there but are not really markers..and i really like that one. So i'm going to ask for an ultrasound of the Axilla to see if there appears to be more positive lymph nodes and hope there is not of course but to see if radiation alone would take care of them. My new plan of action.
and thanks for the support....Pat
Well, Pat, I have been holding my breath ever since you announced that you were thinking of getting into trouble again!
So glad that you came through it easily, but #$%@#$ the path!!
Will keep holding my breath.
