Re: 5 year's out from stage 3 Her2 pos 35 pos nodes

Thank you for posting. I am sure there are more of us out there but it is reassuring to know for sure there is another. My surgeon was very surprised when my scans were clear and I did not have mets in my bones or other organs. There was one spot on my left lung that was questionable, but my onc said it was too small to biopsy. It was not been mentioned on my subsequest scan, so if it was something the treatments have wiped it out. I agree with you, we are in God's hands. I feel He certainly led me down to Mayo when I found my lump.
