The first diagnosis was that it was breast cancer, and that was rather difficult to hear because it isn't something that runs in the family, though it wouldn't have been surprising at the same time.
Second was that they were just cysts and they weren't a big deal, just extremely uncomfortable.
What we have fnally discovered is that it is a grade 3 capsular contracture, and there is a cancerous lump on the left side. Basically, there are firms spots in my breast, and it has an abnormal shape/look. In order for it to be fixed, I have to have a surgery for them to clear out the capsule of scar tissue and damaged breast tissue, and remove the cancerous cells.
The sooner this happens, the better, as with most medical procedures. If it is not, the breast will continue to get worse, and eveutally move into a grade 4, and the cancer could spread.
However, because part of it is considered a cosmetic surgery, my insurance will not cover it and I will have to pay out of pocket for it. At this point, there is no way that I would be able to pay for that, and no, payment plans are not available. I have applied for the CareCredit card (for those that don't know, the care credit card is a credit care that covers medical procedures), and even though my credit is in good standing, I was denied, along with trying to get loans. So.....any money donated will go straight to the cost of the surgery. If you are able to spare a dollar or two it would be greatly appreciated. As a side note, for those who don't know me INCREDIBLY well, please know that for me to do this means me putting aside A LOT of pride. I don't even like people buyng me a water from a gas station, or lunch, let alone help with a medical procedure. But, given the circumstance, I feel that it may be time to set the pride aside and ask for help. IF you have questions about all thise please feel free to ask, I won't hold anything back. The best way to get in contact with me is to text me, or message me on Facebook. I really do appreciate you all taking the time to read all of this and if you are able to donate to the cause, you have no idea what that means to me. Just know that when I am able I will defintely pay it forward tenfold. If you are unable to, I completely understand and could totally go for some crossed fingers, well-wishes, positive vibes and prayers.
Thank you all. I love each and every one of you. -Sarah
