Thank you for your reply, the month had a lot going on, i did return to work but that was too soon so signed off again. I have to have a bone scan and a ct scan, and yesterday I started my first cycle of chemo fec-t. Today I don't feel very special, spliting headache, sick and my scalp feels sore. I hope I don't feel like this each time.
Hi Avril, I'm sorry you find yourself here but a warm welcome anyway, as they have found cancer cells in your lymph glands this basically means that they had started to spread outside of the tumour in your breast and the lymph nodes job is to trap them before they go off around your body, I know it can sound alarming but many many ladies here have had a number of nodes affected but have gone on with treatment to make a full recovery, trust in the team looking after you and keep in touch with us here as there is always someone available to listen and answer any questions, between us all we have been through the lot! XxJo
Hi I am Avril and was diagnosed with grade 2 invasive ductal breast cancer on June 2nd 2016 I have had a mastectomy, went for my results and was told i have grade 3 cancer. 7 out of 9 lymph nodes including apical nodes have been replaced with metastatic diseases. Can anyone tell me what this means?
