I got the positive results from my lumpectomy and sentinel lymphe nodes biopsy
Lymohe Nodes negative
thwy said they can’t rule out chemo and are sending a sample to USA for further test - my question is has anyone else had this and is most likely I will Need chemo or still a good chance I won’t need it?
am I overthinking that as they can’t say no chemo it will deffo end up as chemo?
sorry to waffle
Hi Dizzydo it all looks favourable. My score was low 6 and risk of recurrence 11% over 9 yrs. It can't be that predictable though which is why they are testing. Two and a half grand it costs but it's cheaper than chemo. Sorry Hun but you will have to wait. I didn't have chemo. Waiting is the hardest thing.
I had radiotherapy for 5 days and now Tamoxifen and Bisphosphonates. Distract yourself, stay busy and be as optimistic as you can. I was sort of neutral. My 1 yr Mammogram comes up in Dec. X
There’s no way of predicting the score in advance, you’ll have to just wait. But hold on to the positive - stage 1 and no lymph nodes is really good news!
Hi Dizzydo, You got a really favorable report and I am thinking you will get a positive oncotype test too. Keep the positive streak going.
This article is excellent and will help you to understand treatments for early stage breast cancer.
Hugs to you.
Good luck I’m very similar to you and waiting results, my consultant did say she would put £10’in it being low so trying to stay positive, sending hugs
