Had 3d mammo last Oct.2014. Negative. I found huge lump behind my left nipple while bending over & saw it! Went to GYN next day, had 3d mammo & US. scheduled for biopsy 6/23/15, my first anniversary. Malignant. 2cm. ER&PR. Bilateral mastectomy on 7/19 with spacers. Path report came back with 6/9 node involvement.now on chemo, but too afraid of radiation due to family history of heart disease. I'm 64. Starting my 4th chemo this am. Haven't slept as tx is,Taxotere. Terrified of this one. Will do one, not three, & start a chemo pill instead. Can't wait to get my spacers out...so painful.
