I was diagnosed with breast cancer 3 weeks ago. I am ER & PR possitive plus HER2/neu positive. I had a lumpectomy with 3 lymph nodes taken on Wednesday (last week) and now I am in the "waiting" stage which is the worse. I should fund out the stage, what kind & the best treatment possibilities by the end of this week.
I lost my mother from breast cancer 11 years ago (April 5, 2011).
I have started my chemo treatments: 16 weeks every other week - 4 rounds of DENSE DOSE AC & 4 rounds of taxol. Then 1 year of herceptin & 5 years tamoxifin. I am very sacred of putting such toxins in my body but I rather the toxins than the cancer!
Radiation complete! Not too bad. Now on to tamoxifin.
