    Default The 6 had surgery today

    The 6 was just a few weeks ago diagnosed with breast cancer. She had the option of partial lobodamy of both breasts or double Mastectomy. With the partial, she would keep her breasts but the chances of the cancer coming back were 50/50. Plus she would have had to have radiation and Cemo. With a double mastectomy, no radiation and just a cemo pill for a few years, and no return of the cancer. She went in today for the double mastectomy. Surgery was a success. She was first on the list this morning and the surgery lasted just about 5 hrs. They removed 3 lymph nodes on the side of each breast for biopsy. They all came back negative for cancer. So there won't have to be any radiation and probably no Cemo. She will be in the hospital maybe through Sat at best. She was alert and talking when I left her tonite.

    One unfortunate thing about this is, the mamogram did not pick up the cancer. It found a cyst only in one breast. The cyst was removed and cancer cells were found around the cyst after it was biopsied. After that she had an MRI and it found the cancer in the other breast. So, don't always trust just a mamogram to find cancer, if there is even the slightest possibility any family member may have breast cancer, get an MRI.

    Keep your wife with you, RJ. Please. Convince her to do the mastectomy. Breasts beyond child bearing age are merely asthetic. Love is eternal.

    Whatever the choice, God bless you both and I hope for the very best.

    We've got some other members who have went through the same situation with their wives. I'm sure they'll be along shortly.

    Prayers out-
    So the maples formed a union
    And demanded equal rights
    'The oaks are just too greedy
    We will make them give us light'
    Now there's no more oak oppression
    For they passed a noble law
    And the trees are all kept equal
    By hatchet, axe and saw
