I mean really.
What would you do?
I saw the surgical oncologist yesterday about the prophylactic bilateral mastectomy.
Remember that thing?
That thing that’s in the back of my mind in addition to the brain tumors?
The lifetime risk at 85% of breast cancer?
I don’t know.
I am feeling overwhelmed.
I don’t want to wait “too long” and wish I’d have made the other decision.
Dr. F is ready to go. I’m not quite there yet.
Do I dare do the “wait and see” approach? Does that work in Cowden’s Syndrome? You see, PTEN mutations causes people to grow things. Looking back, makes so much sense about why my tonsils were the size of walnuts and why my thyroid was so grossly large.
(I’m doing some things within my power to try to stay on top of that, the overgrowth part) – however, what in life has any guarantees?
