Surgery Scheduled - More Details

Posted by Heather Dennis on July 11th, 2015

My mom received a phone call on July 6th informing her that they found something on her mammogram and had to redo it. She arrived at MUSC on July 7th. She first had to have an EKG. Everything went fine there. The Mammogram showed two spots. They couldn't get a good view of them and they had to keep trying and moving and mashing. Took over 35 minutes to complete the mammogram for that one side. Then had to do a painful ultrasound. Said the areas appear to be benign but want to recheck every 6 months. They also informed her that she will have to have aggressive chemo and radiation for 9 months. She had to redo her bloodwork. Her potassium levels were high last time they did labs and higher today. She was told her to stop taking multivitamins. Will probably lose hair. I'm still in disbelief this is happening. She is still scheduled for the colonoscopy on July 17th and her surgery is scheduled on July 22. She will be able to have it done robotically via the da Vinci. The doctors seem optomistic. We are still trusting God and that He is in control. His hands are going to be guiding the Dr.'s Thank you for praying!
