A little background -- was diagnosed in May with HER2/neu positive BC. I've gone through 6 chemo treatments and have just had a bi-lateral mastectomy. I will have to continue Herceptin until mid-May. My surgeon called the day after my surgery to inform me that the pathology report came back.
She was happy to inform me that it showed NO signs of cancer and that the 19 lymph nodes were all negative.
Tomorrow I meet with my oncologist to go over in more detail the pathology report, but my main question is: Do I have to go through radiation now?
Granted, I'll still have to heal from this surgery before I can have my reconstructive surgery, but geez! I would love to be able to bypass radiation and get on with reconstructive surgery.
Any input would be great!
