Invasive ductile breast cancer: What should I expect?

That was very similar to my diagnosis and thankfully, it hadn't moved into my lymph nodes. I"m big breasted and my first shower after surgery was so painful (breasts hanging down without support) that I took showers with a bra on for about 2 weeks. I think that was the most pain I had during recover from Lumpectomy. Also, I was able to do "partial breast radiation" , which was only 3 sessions with a little more radiation in each session, so that was a blessing. Ask about that. I will pray that all goes well for you next week!!

Thank you, yes, I am asking about the accelerated radiation that is available at Mayo. In Duluth the option for me is 20 days.
