Hi Claire, I have almost the exact same issues going on as you. I am stage 2, grade 3 IDC. They took 17 lymph nodes and I had one that was positive. i struggle daily with worrying it has spread further and have terrible anxiety about it. My oncologist told me that it is not necessary to do any scans unless I have symptoms of metastasis, are you doing additional scans? i think it would give me some reassurance, but I am so scared to do them. I’ve been trying to find survivor stories with lymph positive breast cancer and knowing that we have a small number of positive nodes is reassuring too. But it is very difficult to stay sane with aches and pains. I hope you find reassurance soon!
