Re: Triple negative at 71 what are my odds

Thanks for your reply.

i had WLE plus 3 sentinel nodes removed in Feb 2017.  Had 15 radiotherapy sessions after.  Suggested i have 6 chemo sessions but i was just on the borderline of whether it would be of benefit to me so i said no.

fast forward 2 years to Feb this year.  Recall on my second year mammogram.  2 lumps found in same breast,  triple negative again.  Had mastectomy and level 1 axilliary nodes taken 5 weeks ago. Now having chemotherapy in about 2 weeks time for 12 weeks.  So utterly shocked 😔😔😔😔 

even if i had the chemo 2 years ago there is no guarantee that cancer wouldnt return.

just got to go with it....  take each day at a time and make the most of very day.

pls keep in touch n let me know how you get on. xxx

Re: Triple negative at 71 what are my odds

Hi mini mad,having lumpectomy on 6th june at Jimmy's in Leeds,they will also take and test my nodes under my arm.Hopefully followed by radiotherapy.Double whammy at our house my husband had a prostatectomy last August and he will have to have radiotherapy some time soon.He is nearly 74 and we have been married fir 51 years in September.I never though this would happen to us. I am very positive and have agreed to do a Tip Trial,anything to help with future treatment (I have 1 daughter and 3 granddaughters and numorous younger female relations and friends.I would havehad my op today  if I was not  doing the trial.What stage are you at mini mad?
