I'm new to the forum, and I've been wanting to join a support group for a while. I'm glad I found you.
Seventeen years ago I was diagnosed with TNBC, stage II, growing at fifty percent. I had a lumpectomy, lymph node dissection (2 involved) six rounds of Adriamycin and four weeks of radiation. All was well until November of 2012 when I was diagnosed with TNBC again (not a recurrence), Stage 1, growing at an alarming rate of 90 percent. This time I had bilateral mastectomies and I am currently going through chemo, Cytoxan and Taxotere, and will have my last of four treatments April 8th, then reconstruction.
I've had the BRCA tests done and I'm negative, though I will still consult a doctor about ovary removal because so much research is still in the works on gene testing, and I feel at risk.
Has anyone else experienced this?
