Dead Fat

"Fat necrosis."

That's what Dr. D., the breast cancer surgeon (not to be confused with Dr. VL, who is the plastic surgeon) said when she felt my lumps. She smiled and said not to worry.

I asked her what would be the point in getting a chest xray--as I'm scheduled to get tomorrow.

She shrugged and said, "Might as well."


I sure hope it is dead fat, rather than live cancer cells.

I had a really strong feeling that it was going to be something cosmetic. Dead fat. Reminds me of some of the people I wait on . . . haha.
Good news :)
