Triple negative and lumpectomy

Hi everyone
I was diagnosed with tn X in October 2015. I was told I would need a mastectomy but after 6 rounds of chemo I have now been advised to have a lumpectomy and radiotherpy. Although I know this is good news because chemo has done its job I can not help but think I should have a mastectomy. I feel been tn it is the only think I can do to stop this coming back (I know the difference in reoccurance is only very minimal) has anyone else with tn only had the lumpectomy???
I do have lymph node involvement and am having a lymph node clearance
