Complication or Annoyance?
Only I could have an infection and have it not get worse until I start taking antibiotics. My mild infection called cellulitis had been exactly the same for about a week until Dr. G diagnosed it and prescribed antibiotics. Since that time it has progressively worsened. Today I head back to my original surgeon to have him evaluate it. It is not uncommon to have cellulitis flare up on the site where you have recently had surgery. I keep telling myself this is not a complication just one more little annoyance.

It will be great to talk to my original surgeon and see if his recommendations for my treatment will be the same now that all my markers and test results are in. I haven't seen him in nearly two months after seeing him so frequently at the beginning of this process. I truly do respect his opinion. Everything he recommended was clearly backed up when I did my own research. I knew if I dug down deep enough I would find the positive side of this situation (but for the record -- it is still annoying).

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
