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 truly understand your fear, I was dx 12-8-16 and while Im done with BC treatment Im still undergoing testing due to thyroid issues that may or may not be cancer .

I had a micromet in my SN. My BS said they must have dissected and re-dissected to find it. They did not remove any others because it was so tiny and they were pretty sure there wasn't cancer in any other nodes.

Several ladies in my support group at church had a lot of nodes removed. Not as many as yours but a considerable number. The fallout for them was they developed lymphadema. My ONC said I didn't want to get that. Of course not. These ladies have really suffered with it. It doesn't mean you will but the chances are greater the more lymph nodes that are removed. I hope not for your sake.

10 out of 14 yr in half after recurrence and rolling along fine pain and stiffness from radiation. About five days ago I found a swollen node under my jaw I honestly can't tell if it's from allergies or cold or what and going on in three weeks has me nervous and scared. But I am honestly in prettiest best shape I've been in the last 20 years so wTF . Screw it, my son is now 8 this week, diagnosed when he was 2 and now I'm planning a hell of an eighth birthday party for him . At least this won't screw my party and I won't know for another two weeks if we have something going or not . Also im going water skiing and to Disney this fall, don't give a shit what comes down the pike.

If you're going through hell, keep on going. You might get out before the devil even knows you're there.

I just got pathology back after new adjuvant Taxol and full mastectomy with right side direction and had 25 positive lymph nodes out of 39. Now having A/C. And then then radiation. They are still treating me for cure and am Stage III. Is anyone else out there doing well with similar profile? I am also HER2 positive. Trying to stay positive and be a healthy survivor when done. I need some positive stories....
