I was diagnosed with stage 1 grade 3 Triple Negative breast cancer in October 2008 after a routine mammogram. I had a lumpectomy on the left breast and 6 weeks of radiation. The surgeon felt that chemo would be overkill. I did see an onocologist for a consultation and was told that chemo wouldn't do any good anyway....The following day I saw the radiologist who said there was a 95% chance it wouldn't reoccur. There were actaually 2 tumors, one tested negative, my own body had fought it off. After reading various articles I live in fear that it will come back. I have routine mammograms every 6 months and follow ups with the surgeon. I'm wondering if I should have gone in for a second opinion. Is chemo the normal protocol?
