I am 37 y/o I yesterday been diagnosed with TNBC grade 3 and also DCIS.
I already had surgery (Feb-15/11) - Lumpectomy, Centennial Note & 14 Lymph Notes removed on RIGHT side.
Next step will be 16 weeks of Chemo (start Mid April)
- 4x A/C (Doxorubicin/Cyclophosphamide) following by
- 4x Taxol (Pacilitaxel)
- application every 2 weeks
- also recommended to combine with Neulasta (Pegfilgrastim) to support white cells grow
I also have next week scheduled appointment with Radiologist, which should begin after chemo.
However my question is .... since Radiation will be only treated ONE breast and I am getting worry of re-occurrence or new grow.
I am thinking to get Double Mastectomy to eliminate chances for re-occurrence or more grow. I figure out if I do not have breast cancer cannot re-grow there.
Anybody have same diagnosis and decide for DOUBLE MASTECTOMY ?
I just need to hear another people opinion/experience to help me to make "better" decision.
Hugs, Helen ♥
