You learn the most amazing things reading blogs. 'Up the duff' sounds obscene, doesn't it? Who knew that it means 'pregnant' in Australian? Congratulations, Jeanie and V! (Note to Redlefty: Do not try this phrase on Redwifey, I am pretty sure that you can only say that in Australia and live to tell the tale...) Anyhow, I've learned a lot bumbling about on other people's blogs. Today, my own questions were answered on Roxanne's blog. If breast cancer usually metasticized to the lungs, to the bones, to the liver or to the brain, why are we not looking for cancer there? Why are we 'waiting to see...?' Roxanne's doctor explained it this way: If it becomes metatastic, it's incurable. Catching it earlier won't make a difference. No need for scans.
