Just week ago after my needle biopsy and MRI I was diagnosed with Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma, Clinical Stage IIB. There is a possibility of nodes involvement since I have pain under my right arm and in my arm (it is swelling). I met with multidisciplinary team and they decided to go with chemo first. My IDS stage IIB-1 is grade 3 (aggressive), plus it is triple positive (ER+, PR+, Her2 3+). I was explained that in my case (Her2+) the best to start chemo first with addition of drug to treat Her2+. Also, they have scheduled a node biopsy and PET/CT scan. My only hope, the cancer has not spread in other parts of body...
