Stage 2 triple negative breast cancer
I was diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer. Because my tumor is aggressive and fast growing they flipped the treatment around from doing surgery first and starting chemo instead. I have made my decision from the choices I was giving which basically was double mastectomy followed by reconstructive surgery. I have decided that that is not an option for me so all I am willing to do is have a lumpectomy. My question is because it has spread to my lymph nose will the surgeon still be willing to do a lumpectomy I believe the size of my tumor at the start with 9 cm I've had eight rounds of chemo and it's only shrunk very little. I called my surgeon to let them know I decided against a double mastectomy and only willing to do a lumpectomy they made me an appointment to talk to her January 2nd. I have so much anxiety it's making me sick to the point where I feel it will kill me before the chemo or cancer does and having to wait a month to get these answers is frustrating to say the least. So if anybody has answers to these questions I would so appreciate it.
