Reoccurrence after bilateral mastectomy
In June 2020, I was diagnosed with hormone negative, her2+ IDC breast cancer. I received TCHP before a lumpectomy, followed by radiation and 12 cycles of Herceptin. In August, 2021 I was considered in remission. Then in January 2022, I was diagnosed with IDC, triple negative, inflammatory breast cancer. I had chemotherapy again, TC + keytruda and then AC + keytruda before my double mastectomy. I had my double mastectomy in August, had some complications with the expanders and eventually had them removed, then in November I started having skin nodules pop up, the first one was right under my scar and then I had about 8 with in a few weeks, they biopsied them all and resected a wound that wasn't healing as well and they all came back as Triple Negative IDC breast cancer. They are having me start chemotherapy again on Friday, then radiation and chemotherapy afterwards.
Has anyone been through this before? I think this is considered regional reoccurrence but not sure, still shocked and overwhelmed.
