I was diagnosed last September with IDC Breast Cancer, Stage 2, Grade 3, Triple Negative.
I just had the 7th of 8 rounds of chemo last Thursday. I had my lumpectomy last October with axillary node dissection.
I will be having additional surgery approximately a month after chemo to re-excise the margins. Then radiation therapy approximately a month after surgery.
Being Triple Negative means I cannot be treated with hormone therapy. I feel terrified about life after treatment because I'm triple negative.
Is there anyone else diagnosed at Triple Negative out there? I'm sure there must be. I would like to hear your thoughts and experiences being triple negative. What have your oncologists and surgeons told you about long term prognosis post treatment?
