SO while my appt went well yesterday with my onc. When I told her how I had to have my expandanders removed for the infection and had to put off my recon, she suggested I not do reconstruction!! She said she tells all of her triple negative patients this. I had already decided on my bi lateral with when I first saw her initially and she never said that to me then. When I asked her why she feels this way she set me very straight in her very kind way that being triple neg., by chances of dancing with NED are not great and especially since my chemo did not wipe out every single cell. She said if I have reoccurence all that work comes out again... I asked if I would be better off to wait two years to consider the recon., and she said she wished I would. Ok ladies... What do you think? Any triple negatives told this? I am reading between her lines/word and afraid she is telling me she suspects my cancer will retuen in less than 2 years... Would love your input here!
