thank you so much mamas, I have so much to say to thank all of you, but let me update you a tad.
I spoke to my homeopath on Friday am, he had spoken to my local hospital, and the 'growth' is termed "suspicious". It is also measuring at 2-3 cm. To me that doesn't sound big, especially b/c what I'm feeling is a golf ball. (Blessed, can you step in if you are still around and tell me how big 2-3 cm is?). What I saw on u/s was the big lymph node, and a smaller black circle, that I haven't felt before. I'm hoping that maybe that teeny thing--looked grape sized, is the cancer and my lymph node is just inflammed from the cancer being there. If so, I'm wicked proud of my lymph node for fighting it, and pointing it out to me
Anywho, I have a referral out w/a surgeon that was recommended to me by many people over at Dartmouth, who works w/breast cancer (oh, my breasts are fine, I'm a size B, feel my self up regularly due to nursing, and they are not lumpy or nuttin.), and has specialty in "axillary mass", which is what I have going on. Dartmouth will be getting back to me on Mon or Tues to set up a consult.
Okay, let's see if I can answer questions, oh and Gitti, I am a huge research nerd, so any book recommendations, links to websites, are hugely appreciated. I'm in attack mode right now.
MT, thank you for bringing up thermography
I knew this was an option but totally forgot under my pressure for the mammogram at the hosptial. Will be discussing this at Dartmouth to get a baseline. But I'm feeling that my breasts are healthy, so we'll see.
Raw food diet, I was on this for some time before, but it is worth looking into. I have leaky gut and I totally feel that b/c of that my immune system could not fight this off. I'm about to do the SCD/MD diet to heal to give my body a chance to fight this off. I'm young, and pretty healthy despite the leaky gut. I think this will be the key to my recovery.
I have no info about this Hoxsey stuff and it was recommended twice on this thread. Desiree, you said you could get me contact info?? I'd be interested.
I'll look into that Danial Chapter 1, if you have a link I'd be
I do not use anti-perspirant, haven't in yrs. I use Burt's Bees stuff that allows me to sweat, but prevents the stinky smell.
and congrats to you. Thank you so much for the PM, the dr. your BIL recommended is the one I'm going w/. And thanks for the 'referral'. And I totally hear you on being around for my kids. Radiation/Chemo is not a path I want to go on, but, I will always choose life, over death. I'm open
JANE!!! OMG, you are the bomb. So glad I've started the primezyme and the peptizide. I haven't dug into your links, but will do as soon as my head is a lil' less fuzzy.
Let's see, I just got to blessed's post on Dr. Day. Very interesting. I stumbled up her sight a couple of months ago when I was starting to realize that what I had was cancer, and I had similar concerns.
And thank you for all the hugs and such, and please, if you have any links or anything, I'm a research nut, not up to MT's standards (
), but one nonetheless. I'm not really dealing w/the emotional aspect of this until I really know what is going on. I'm just gone into research hyper-drive
Thanks everyone, I'll keep you updated after my consult next week.
