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 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.

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....

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
