I am new to this site, I was dx on Jan. 28, 2012. I notice a problem (discharge from my right nipple) back in '08, my husband was getting ready to be laid off, but I did get my mammogram prior (just a wk. before his lay off), at that time, my doctor didn't see anything, but he did tell me to keep an eye on it.
what else was I going to do? I mean I had no insurance at this time, we lost everything due to the economy in 2009.
I finally got a job with insurance, went to the doctor, to find out, I am now stage 3 double negative, HER2 positive bc.
Just wondering if anyone else has this, and how you maybe responding to treatments. I have had my right breast removed, 4 rounds of chemo, almost done with my 1 yr. of herceptin, and my doctor is talking about putting me on Tykerb.
