Although I don’t want to be defined by my breast cancer, I suppose some details are useful. I’m about to see the oncologist tomorrow for chemotherapy. After that, I will have radiation therapy, followed by hormone (or anti-hormone) therapy.

I appear to have clear margins, and am node negative, so those are good signs. The tumor was/is aggressive, hence the need for chemo. I had a lumpectomy and that’s healing nicely.

I hate medical tests. I hate waiting for the results and thinking that it’s a bad result, I’ve failed again. This is because I have test anxiety in general. That basically sucks.

But the prognosis is good…….
