Well, I thought it was hard enough to care for my husband with Alzheimers along with seeing to my 98 year old aunt in the nursing home and to a friend in Assisted Living who I have the entire P.O.A.
Then I was diagnosed with a rare type of breast cancer called Paget's Disease. My primary care doctor determined it was a cyst. Mammogram showed no evidence of cancer, but after about at least a year and a half I had a dermotologist take a biopsy.
So on September 22 I had a mastectomy..no cancer in lymph nodes but have to start a pill soon to keep cancer from invading blood cells.
I will be 79 next month. I feel okay..still have a drainage tube in breastless area. I am thankful for what I hope turns out to leave me with a few more good healthy years.
Anyone heard of Paget's Disease or know of anyone who had this rare form of breast cancer? Marymember
