Sorry, pressed post too soon! Anyway, I thought I had the worst case the modern world had ever seen. Even after 2 lumpectomies and a mastectomy, though, it turned out I was still stage 1. I know many women, myself included, who have gone through multiple surgeries and although it's a nightmare, the surgical part will soon be over and you can move forward with treatment. May you have a speedy recovery and a long, happy an healthy life after all this is done!!
