I got a second opinion

Before I wanted surgery I did want a second opinion. So I did go to get the second opinion. Here I was whopping and hollering in this office about my breast having to be removed. He said "Well, Bernita, did the doctors take an x-ray?" I said an "x-ray?" And I said "no, why?" He said because if not chest x-ray, maybe cancer spread and no need to remove breast because it would be a cosmetic surgery and not a cure. Well then what we need to know is have the cancer spread to your lung. I got to the x-ray and they kept asking questions and everything was yes, no, I was getting snappy. I had my x-ray. They called back and said it had not spread to my lungs. Then I started to cry again.
