I was diagnosed as triple negative early in August. I'm a 58 yr old Caucasian. Originally the plan was chemo, lumpectomy then radiation. Now my oncologist says the surgeon says a double masectomy would be a better choice. The stage is 2B with lymph node involvement. I don't know how many lymp nodes are involved for sure but they say they will take out at least 2 levels of lymph nodes in my armpit. Chemo I am getting is AC (doxorubicin and cyclophosphamide) followed by paclitaxel. I've got one of the four AC treatments left then switch to paclitaxel for 4 every other week treatments.
