Even better news...
Just found out the pathology came back as nothing invasive! The posterior margin was a bit close to the pec muscle, but doc says it should be fine. Will be getting a second opinion on the path from my doc here in Alabama to be sure, though. Assuming they agree, I shouldn't need any chemo or radiation...all that will be left to do is finish up my reconstruction surgeries and get back to living life!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Showered by myself for the first time today with no problem, and I climbed the stairs for the first time with no problem. Yahoo!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonderful! So glad to read your post today. Things are really looking up!

You would never normally be saying that the news you got is good, however given that you don't need chemo or radiation, in this case I think it is excellent news.

Good luck with your further recovery.

SG, I am so very glad to hear your good news. It seems that relief can be so intense, that it can be like starting a new life!

Absolutely! Nothing like feeling like you are being given a second chance!

Hello everyone! I'm doing great, still not 100%, but definitely continuing to heal and progress daily. I am now 3.5 wks post surgery. I'm up to walking 2.4 miles, and in fact, I am going to walk our local Race for the Cure tomorrow, while DH runs. Anyways, Sarah in SC shared this with me, and I thought it was hilarious, so I just have to pass it on. Wouldn't want you all to think I have lost my sense of humor!!! Just doing my part to increase awareness. Ladies, enjoy.

Simple Girl--I thought you'd like that--and it certainly garnered some interest from the full gamut of my friend list, LOL!
Those guys are pretty hot, for sure. Whew!
And I think you knew my sis-in-law is in the club, too, unfortunately. She loved the video, too!

Is there an analogous video with hot babes showing men how to check for a certain male-specific cancer (no, not prostate)?

I think I went too far this time.

You are the first brave man to reply...LOL, no you did not go too far! Laughter is the best medicine!

Oh, and if you find it, please do refrain from posting it here, though!
