Multifocal IDC, DCIS, Positive Node, ALND
I was diagnosed in feb 2022.
The cancer in my lymph nodes did not show up in PET scan. It was discovered through pathology.
Left IDC and DCIS; IDC:29 mm; DCIS:48mm; 1/2 nodes positive; Grade 2
Right DCIS: 22mm; 0/1 nodes; Grade 2
Surgery BMx 3/17/2022

Radiation Therapy Breast, Lymph nodes
Here is my current situation. I had seroma liquid oozing out 2 months post surgery and I have been packing the wound daily. Onco wants all the lymph nodes from the left arm removed after chemo. I will also have rad and harmone therapy in the treatment plan. It will be helpful to hear from someone who has been thru ALND their side effects or decided NOT to do ALND.
