Rex and I travel to MD Anderson every three months for my follow ups, labs, tests, etc and everything has been good so far...
Yesterday at my first 3-D mammogram and ultrasound since finishing radiation, a mass was found in the breast that was not treated for cancer. Not gonna lie, it was the longest three hours of my life as they took more and more images. I thought to myself "am I strong enough to do cancer treatment again??" I was shaking and trying not to cry as I was texting Rex (they do not allow family in during these tests). It scared the sh** out of Rex and me until we heard the words "it is benign". Talk about surreal. I am beyond thankful to be cancer free, for this hospital and my amazing team of oncologists, and for God, our family, and our friends!
So ladies-- PLEASE make sure you are doing monthly self breast exams and getting your annual mammograms! It is so important to take care of your health. Trust me. I will never stop creating awareness and reminding you of this!! Now go feel your boobies!!
