As it has been with my breast cancer journey thus far, my second surgery is full of ups and downs with some BIG NEWS revealed at the end!

After my initial lumpectomy surgery, I was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer back in December of 2021. Since that time we have gone through a full round of IVF to preserve our fertility and 5 months of chemotherapy. In this episode we share everything from 6 weeks post chemo to making the difficult decision regarding which surgery to have (mastectomy or lumpectomy) to the recovery process and finally the pathology results of surgery.
