Update * Our friend, Tom is an OBGYN doctor. He has been so kind into guiding Roger and me with information and he was the connection for getting my appointment today with a second surgeon. It was an excellent meeting. I am going with this surgeon. Again, the treatment will be lumpectomy followed by partial breast radiation---a new treatment of radiation that will go through a catheter into the area that the lump is removed from. I will do this very soon after surgery twice a day for five days. This is a much more intense schedule packed into one week as opposed to 6 long weeks of radiation. I am very glad I am a candidate for this new type of radiation. So basically, in a matter of a few weeks from surgery, I will be done with all my treatments for this cancer providing everything including the surgery goes as planned. I will find out tomorrow exactly what my schedule is. Stay tuned.
