Haven't been back for awhile because turn of events went very fast...after my diagnosis of invasive ductal carcinoma was confirmed, I had surgery last Sept.27th (lumpectomy with sentinel node biopsy, needle loc and axillary node dissection) Today, I had my first appointment with my doc, and it was great news, margins are clear and all lymph nodes clear( had 2 nodes dissected but came out negative)... So we kicked the hell out of it! Now I am concentrating on getting physically better. Radiation to follow and still don't know if I need chemo, I will see my oncologist this coming week. But whatever it's gonna be, I am ready,At least I could breath much better now!.If I will need chemo, my surgeon said its an insurance that the cancer will not come back in the future..Its been a hell but God be the glory and I came out a stronger person!

Wonderful news that your margins and lymph nodes were clear. Now you can start your recovery as well as the next phase of your treatment.

I also have invasive ductal carcinoma but did have lymph node involvement. Such a shock but am almost done with chemo and am then onto radiation. Tough road but my doctors say it is my best course for long term success.

I wish you all the best in your journey. You will find out you are much stronger than you ever could have imagined!

Best of luck and hope you can skip the chemo part. If not, it's doable. Sounds like we had similar situations. I did have chemo (and radiation) and now it's 2 years later and life is good.
