    I had the same type. It was stage 1 my doctor froze it (Cryoablation is a process that uses extreme cold (cryo) to remove tissue (ablation). Then 2-weeks later the dead tissue was surgical removed. I'm scheduled to start radiation next week. I have stayed very positive that I'm stronger than this and I'm already winner in all I do! I hope this helps and pleas know I'm here for you. I'll forward my contact information if needed.

      Thanks for your comment! I find myself going through bouts of depression lately. Everyone tells me to keep busy, so I've been working at my job nonstop. But this causes me to see and play with my son less and less. My husband works too but he tries to keep me motivated. I meet with an oncologist Monday for the first time. Not sure what to expect or ask?

    I had a bilateral mastectomy in July after my dx, and now wish I had considered a lumpectomy more. I really really miss having one good breast with a nipple.
