Re: I just found out I have breast cancer

another er/pr neg and her 2 pos girl here. I needed to have a mastectomy after my lumpectomy and 12 pos nodes. After my mastectomy the path report was positive for BC in my ducts, lobes, nipple , with lots of vascular invasion. I wasn't given the option of a bilat, as they started me on Dose Dense chemo very quickly therafter. Once my chemo and rads were done( after 6 mos) I insisted on having the remaining breast removed and at the same time have reconstruction. Turned out the " good " breast was loaded with atypia and hyperplasia. My docs actually told me " you were right to push for the removal of the other breast" . erceptin was very very easy for me. anyway that was over 7 yrs ago and I am extremely happy and feel blessed erveryday.
