On the road to recovery
The tumor ended up being 2.5 centimeters, and the lymph nodes showed no signs of cancer, which confirmed her stage IA diagnosis. With these results, Gretta would not have to do any radiation or go through chemotherapy.
“My overall experience was very positive,” Gretta shares. “From being first diagnosed to being treated and having the nodule removed took only about two months.”
All of Gretta’s follow-up tests have been positive to this point with no sign of the nodule returning. Dr. Gillespie will continue to monitor her progress to ensure the cancer doesn’t come back.
