I am at PAN Klinik to see Prof. Dr. Breidenbach for a post operation check-up. There is this bald girl waiting with me and I ask about her hat in order to start a conversation, as she seems nice – meet Katja – we are the same age, she also has a small child and we happen to both have the chemos in pioh on Thursdays…. we quickly exchange numbers – yipehhh, found myself a chemo buddy!
Prof. Dr. Breidenbach tells me that the sentinals were ok – this is excellent news!!! The cancer has not spread in the rest of my body and from what she can see on the ultrasound, the tumor is softer already, which means the chemo is doing it’s job… yipehhhh again!
The bad news is that the second tumor was also aggressive, which means that the whole breast is actually effected and will probably need to be removed and they don’t know, if they can keep the nipple. Whatever needs to be removed, will be removed, but as far as I am concerned, I will do one step at a time and concentrate on the chemo first.
