Should I try to see another surgeon sooner than 5 days from now? I was diagnosed yesterday and my pathology report showed a Nottingham score of 8 (aggressive cancer).

    Leslie, I wouldn't push to try to get a quicker date. You have enough on your plate so don't put more stres on yourself as this little time really doesn't make a difference. Compared to lots of surgeries, this is quick. Hang in there and please keep us posted. We are here to help and support you through this process. Blessings and take care, Sharon

    It was a six week wait for me before I had my surgery. Partly because I was traveling and thousands of klm away from home and the other was the two week wait to see the surgeon. Of course I was worried but tried not to think about it. I was told that it wouldn't make any difference. I am sure that your surgeon will act as fast as he needs to once you see him. Good luck and don't worry, just put your trust in your medical team.

    Did you get referred to an oncologist? I had 6 months chemo before

    Waiting is the worst part. A second opinion is always OK. Stay in touch PLEASE.
