Chemo before or after surgery?
Can't believe I'm actually here. I was diagnosed with Stage 1 invasive ductal carcinoma in my right breast on 8/26. Then they wanted me to get an MRI done at a real cancer center a month later. I live in a remote area. So, I did on 9/22. Got the results 9/23 and they found MORE masses now in my left breast. I also had 2cm enlarged axillary lymph nodes in my right armpit. So, I had to get 3 biopsies done in one day!!! Now I wait for my results for a week. Chemo has been talked about. But not yet confirmed. I hate this wait. I only wanted to get a surgery date and option after the MRI! What usually comes first tho? Chemo or surgery???
