My dr told me the other day that my BC feeds off of estrogen. He said i'm triple positive. Is there other ladies in this group triple positive as well???

    Triple positive
    Babe, triple positive means that your breast cancer is positive for estrogen, progestrone, and the Her/Neu gene -- it feeds off all of them. There are many ladies who are triple positive. The good thing about that is that there are many treatment options, from Tamoxifen and AIs to Herceptin.
