This is my very first post...diagnosed with BC in October, (you know the month when all those pink ribbons are constantly in your face as a reminder) In December had a lumpectomy and sentinal node biopsy that showed NOT clear margins and a less than one mm tumor in lymph node. Just two weeks ago had a mastectomy and all margins are clear of cancer- removed 20 lymph nodes and also NO cancer. My oncologist has recommended tomoxifen therapy and still thinks I should do the taxotere and cytoxin chemo because of the micro tumor in my first lymph node. I was determined that I would only go through the chemo if there was any more cancer in my lymph nodes, but now am scared that if a few years down the road I have cancer somewhere else I will always blame it on not taking the chemo..anyone else been down this road and chose not to do chemo?
