Hi I had my lumpectomy 2 days ago with 3 lymphnodes removed.

They have said 1 none looks suspicious.

I've had a feeling that the cancer has spread for a while now and feel I will be told this on my results day.

Has anyone else felt the same way?

  • Hi  

    I had a lumpectomy last April and a micro amount of cancer were found in one of my lymph nodes. I was advised to have both chemotherapy and radiotherapy and finished all my treatment last week Slight smile

    Edit - Just realised you'd asked if anyone felt that their cancer had spread. I was surprised that it was in one lymph node as I wasn't expecting it to have spread anywhere as I'd been told that it had been caught really early.

  • Hi Darlene

    Welcome to the forum and sorry to hear that you were diagnosed with triple negative. Like you I had some cancer left in one of my lymph nodes. My oncologist put me on chemo tablets for six months to mop up any stray cancer cells the escaped. While I didn’t feel my cancer had spread I did know the minute I found my lump over two years ago that I had cancer.

    Best of luck with your results.

    Best wishes
