a little amendment...

I heard back from the nurse with the outcome of the "tumour board" and I still don't require any additional surgery, but it looks like I don't have the very popular type of breast cancer (invasive ductal carcinoma) that they originally thought, and instead have rarer type, glycogen-rich clear cell carcinoma. She indicated that it will likely mean a more aggressive chemotherapy treatment than what would have been given. I see the Medical Oncologist the second week of March so will know more then, but really if you have to have chemo you might as well go big.


  1. I had three heavy doses and look how well I turned out:) Come in for coffee when u have a chance. I'll expense it.....


  2. You are an inspiration Steve!! I just hope I don't turn out as cranky as you are ;-).

    I'll be in touch for that coffee.
