Lymph node involvement pre vs post surgery

Hi everyone

i am stage 3, HER2 and hormone positive and have had chemo/targeted, with some residual cancer remaining. I have been told by my medical team that I am lymph node negative, however this is purely from scans. I am due to have my mastectomy soon and I have been told by my breast care nurse that there is still a chance I will be lymph node positive when they are removed and checked under a microscope. Im just wondering if any ladies out there have been lymph node negative pre op, and positive post op? Im getting very worried about what I will wake up to post surgery and would appreciate hearing others’ experience ❤️ xxx
