My wife had a bilateral mastectomy today and just came out of surgery, during the surgery they did a sentinal node mapping and biopsy. The surgon said two nodes showed positive so they took all of them out of her arm. My concern is that she had chemo BEFORE surgery so obviously it didn't kill everything. Will she have to go through chemo again ?  The Surgon wouldn't answer the question when I asked him and just said we have to wait until the path report comes back..  Any one out there have a similar experiance, Positive lymph nodes found AFTER chemo? I am praying she doesn't have to suffer through chemo again. Thank you all.

Hi Marcia,

Thanks for the reply. I'm sorry you had to do chemo again, was your first round of chemo A/C then Taxol also? IT sounds like what your doctor prescribed worked as that was back in 2003 and you are still here. God bless.
