My cancer was estrogen fed with none found in connecting lymph nodes. Is anyone else in this situation? And what was your treatment? And for how long?

    My breast cancer was stage 2 estrogen and progesterone positive and her2 negative. I had 8 rounds of chemo (4 A/C and 4 taxol) followed by a lumpectomy. Next I will do radiation and then will be on tamoxifen for 5 years.

    Same as Tiffani with the chemo but I opted for a bilateral mastectomy so no radiation

    Dear Susan , the best answer I can give you is if you have had cancer even though it didn't get in your lymph nodes, I would still take chemo maybe around 3 times. A friend of mine was just like that and she made them take the breast off but here is what they did they sent her tissue to Raleigh and examined it really good to see if she scored low med or high this would determine weather she needed to take chemo and sure enough she scored a med so they give her 3 treatments. But for peace of mind she was glad

      dcis in situ extended to lobules estrogen receptive high gradefocus on mucinous carcinoma invasive stage 1 hysterectomy 12 yrs ago bilateral mastecomy 10/19 with right lymph node disection. recon 2/3 replacement surgery, Letrozole for 5 yrs no rad or chemo. I did it becuase I am 59 in case it spread I wanted to aviod surgery at 75. It is a hard recovery. I lost range of motion , letrozole can make you tired and emotional. If I were younger I would maybe choose less agressive

    I agree with the others, however I'd like to add I had a complete hysterectomy and it helped tremendously is slowing the progression. Wasn't what I thought i would be doing at 34 but then again cancer wasn't either. Best of luck!

    Susan, I am in the same boat as you. I've had a lumpectomy and now a partial mastectomy. My doc also put in the mammosite. I go on Tuesday to see if I will be able to get my radiation treatments through the mammosite at that time.
