(16-08-02) Surgery Postponed

I saw Dr. Walsh yesterday and today, and she reluctantly agreed to postpone my surgery. While I still have a nickel-sized area of dead tissue along my scar line, she acknowledged that it doesn’t look as bad as it did last week.

“You understand that there is only about a 5% chance that new, healthy skin is growing underneath that area, right?”

I do…but hey – I have been the exception, the minority, the rare percentage at EVERY TURN of this journey. Maybe this time it will actually work in my favor.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Invasive Breast Cancer in October/November, 2015. This blog is my way to process my experience and allow my loved ones to have ongoing updates about my journey.

  1. I have a question for you…what would you say to one of your students, friends, or family members if the roles were reversed? Its difficult for me to comment because I’m not in your shoes and know that this means so much to you. Just promise everyone that this is the only postponement if it doesn’t get better….
