It’s a mixed news kind of situation.

The pathology report did not come out as “cleanly” as was hoped – there is metastatic cancer in three lymph nodes.  The report says that there is no external nodal involvement (so this means it’s contained within the nodes themselves). The breast itself had a small region of “in situ” cancer, which is actually very good.

Also there is nothing showing in remaining lymph node, the lymphatic system and skin.

For now, it is a “watch and wait” situation – it could be years before anything more is known as to what impact this may have.

  1. I hope that the pain from those drains is going away sweetie. I’m sending you all my positive energy.

  2. I know it’s not what you want to hear, but the worst is over…at least you know something.
    In situ is good, and it’s a good thing that no skin or other lymphatic involvement was detected. I know that it wasn’t exactly what you had hoped to hear, but it also wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
    Keep your chin up and faith strong.
    And we’ll keep you in prayers.
    Much love.
