Wait time from diagnosis to surgery
I was diagnosed on 9-25 and will meet with a surgeon on 11-9. She is scheduling surgeries for December and January, depending upon priority.
Dx is Stage 1, Grade 1 with mild cortical thickening of one lymph node, as per ultrasound. MRI showed no lymph node involvement.
I know I am extremely fortunate to have caught this so early. However, I plan to ask for double mastectomy to avoid radiation and hormonal therapies because I am older, etc.
Does this sound like a long time to wait for surgery? Does anyone have something similar to share?
