I just had a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery for invasive lobular cancer. My surgeon said that I had 22/24 positive lymph nodes. I am very concerned about this high number. Has anyone else had an experience with this many pos.nodes.

I had surgery in July 2017 for stage 3 invasive lobular cancer...I am currently in my 5th month of chemo to be followed up with 6+ weeks of radiation...the radiology oncologist said I am on the " very high end " of stage 3 and my pathology report states that 21 out of 21 lymph nodes were removed due to testing positive for cancer. I am very tired and starting to have a hard time remaining positive...especially when my chemo onc tells me there is no way to tell if the chemo is working...and that if I live 5 years I will be considered cured. My diagnosis came just about 6 months after I retired...I would love to finally enjoy retirement / life but I am constantly filled with worry that my cancer has spread and I am just a ticking time bomb before anot
