Diagnosed with Lobular carcinoma in August 2013 - have had left side mastectomy - 6 cycles of chemo - so far 8 cycles of herceptin (Her2 positive) reconstruction left/reduction right
now i am facing the Radiation phase (6 wks) and am having serious doubts about the necessity for it.
would like to hear from others who have gone through the treatment - good & bad results
I did have lymphnode involvement - 8 out of 13 cancerous - that's why the radiation was put back on the table even tho i had a mastectomy.
Just so frustrated that there is no way to tell if the cancer is still there after chemo...i hate putting my body through life changing treatments not knowing if it's even working...
