Hi Rachael I was Diagnosed in May 18 with 3 different types of BC over a 4 week time period, I was initially told I had DCIS, then a week later it was IDC, then a week later it was IBC. I was very confused for 5 weeks, then oncologist confirmed it was DCIS with a mix of IDC, with lymph node involvement. I had 3 months 3 weekly EC, then weekly Paclitaxal. During chemo, my lymph nodes shrunk significantly, however the chemo only partially reduced the tumour. I had a Mx in December, with clean margins and 5 lymph nodes removed. Surgeon confirmed he got all the cancer out, I now start radiotherapy in the next week, then hormone treatments. It can be very confusing initially, however once the medical team know what they are dealing with, they always have your best interests at heart. I have supported my treatments with Acupuncture, Manual lymphatic drainage, Spiritual healing, homeopathy and herbal medicine. I feel good, no longer toxic because the cancer is out. We all have our journey, it’s a challenging journey, however this will make us stronger.
