Hello Smilersue, sorry to hear of your situation, a lot of contradiction in the opinions, but its good you share it relevantly. Are they given you choice for chemo or they announce it to you?. A second opinion in this complex situation Good Luck!
Hi I was triple negative. Had Mx in March. No lymph nodes or vascular involvement. Told it was 5% possibility of recurrence. I am due to start FEC-T x 6 next week. I was not given choice of chemo or not. Told it would mop up any stray cells which may have escaped. I would rather have chemo and make sure nothing was lurking anywhere in my body than risk not doing it.
Lump was 2.4cm, not close to chest wall and no radiotherapy needed.
