When you met with your BS did you ask him if you were going to get an SNB? Because if your SNB is positive, then you will have to get a full axillary dissection. They do them with lumps and with masts and you can have a + node with IDC or ILC or even DCIS. The more they do there the greater your risk of LE.
When are you meeting with your onc? Did he have any suggestions for a tx for you? Most of us get A/C or A/C T, but they are still giving CMF for early stage bc. I was glad I was Her- . But since I am now ER+ we are talking about an ooph and then I will start either tamox or an AI. I am a little nervous because I heard the S/Es from the AIs can be pretty tough. But if that is the best way to protect from mets then I have to do it.
Do you know if you will be doing rads?
I get my exchange next month. I am going for the high profile gummy bears. You are doing a DIEP, right?
(If you DID understand this, Hello Sister. Did you ever think you WOULD know this when you were first dx'd?)
