I am happy to report that I got great news today. After having surgery which removed 16 lymph nodes from my left side, they were all found to be negative! I also have possitive progesterone and estrogen receptors which means I will be on Tamoxifen for the next 5 years. The Her-2 factor was weakly possitive, the tumor is diploid and the S-phase factor is borderline. Despite this encouraging news, I was told by one doctor that I should have a mastectomy because of the extension of the DCIS. My surgeon disagrees and has ordered a mammogram to see if there is any DCIS or invasive cancer remaining, although he doubts there is. If there is as much as a speck, I will definately have the third surgery, if not, the choice is up to me, any suggestions?
