I don't technically count as triple neg as 22 years ago they didn't even have a HER2 test to make triple testing but I didn't have any hormone treatment so have guessed I was at least ER-.
I was told nothing of size, grade or actual chemos used in treatment but I do know I had 3/8 lymph infected from a random sample. I had wle, radio, chemo.
After 22 years I thought I had put all this behind me but have just been diagnosed with a new primary. Stage 1, grade 1, ER+, HER2- so I know I am a pretty good, bad place this time round.
But I guess I would have classed as triple neg all those years ago. I have requested another 22 years please.
Best wishes to you all and it can be done :):
Thank you for your post. I am in exactly the same boat as you.. TNBC and clear nodes. Having the same chemo ( due to start T next week and so far so OK). My kids are 6 and 7 so thank you for inspiring me. I know I can do it, and it's nice to know a survivor!
All the very best to you xxx
Also just been diagnosed with triple negative BC with lymph node spread. Already scheduled for a lumpectomy and node clearance this Saturday. The combination of triple neg and nodes has not left me feeling very positive.
Would really appreciate hearing from anyone who has triple neg and lymph nodes.
Hi thank you for your replies. I've been for pre-assessment at hospital for my Thursday op this afternoon and missed a call from nurse when I went up for bloods. I'd turned my phone off and forgot to switch it on until I got home and too late to ring. I suffer from white coat high blood pressure and that was up at my assessment so hope they are not planning on postponing things. Jackie x
