You were reading my mind! And your diagnosis is so similar to mine ... I would have been stage 1 instead of stage 2 if my tumor had been 2mm smaller.
My path reports say ER-/PR+, HER2-. I have a strong family history. My onc questioned the path report, had me do the oncotype test which came back inconclusive. In my treatment, because of my history, we "erred on the side of caution" and I had TAC x6 and radiation. I finished radiation March 6.
I recently requested copies of my medical records as I am changing to a new gyno - and I requested copies of all my surgeons and MO records. Interesting reading ... I always took good notes and I do not remember hearing the words come out of her mouth, but in the file it refers to her suspicion it is really triple negative.
I am BRCA1- for the family mutation (lost a niece to BC 4 years ago). Her sister was just diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. I am seeing my new gyno Thurs and requesting surgery to have my ovaries and tubes out (I am post menopausal). It is so hard to catch ovarian cancer early and I am scared to death ... I feel like they are ticking time bombs in my body.
And YES, I am on Arimidex. What is the game plan for you?
