Hello all,

I have recently been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and am due to have surgery this Sunday. I did the pre-operative blood tests, and just looked at the results. Was quite horrified to see that I have very high neutrofils (9) and a very high neutrofil to lymphcyte ration, which is apparently (from all the research papers I have read) not a good thing.

Have any of you other triple negative people had abnormal bloods prior to commencing treatment? I will of course ask my breast surgeon when I see her tomorrow, though I would really value some experiences of this.
