Triple Positive - working with treatment
Received a triple positive diagnosis 4 days ago-2mm invasive ductal carcinoma. ..I am scheduled for a lumpectomy on my right breast on 4/18. I dont 100% know the treatment until the surgery is done, but am meeting with my oncologist prior to the surgery to discuss potentially what this will entail, I assume chemo plus targeted drug, like herceptin. The surgeon also spoke with me about doing a complete reduction on both breasts, while removing the tumour which I am considering also. I am large breasted so he would be able to remove a fair amount of tissue.
Unfortunately, I found all of this out after I gave notice at my old job as an accounting manager and agreed to start a new job with another company.
So I am supposed to start my new job on 4/28... after my surgery. It is pretty important for me to keep a job and obviously insurance-I am single, 59 years old.
Appreciate whatever guidance you can give me.
