I wanted to get your opinion on if you think I'll have to have radiation or not. Of course the one to decide that is the radiation oncologist. I have an appointment in a week. I just thought I'd see if my situation compared with what you have been through or done research on.
--Diagnosed April 8, 2013 - just the right breast
--Cancer is nowhere else (woohoo)
--Double Mastectomy on April 29
--Cancer was found in the sentinel (first) lymph node plus only 1 more. Surgeon took out about 9 lymph nodes in all I think.
--12 Rounds of Abraxane (started late May - will finish in mid August)
--After Abraxane, I will do 4 rounds of the FEC Chemo
--If I have to have radiation, then it will be after I finish FEC, sometime in October.
Do any of yall think I will require radiation with the info given above? My regular oncologist didn't think I would since I have already had my surgery.
