Hello, I'm new to this and still learning all the abbreviations. In my left I had Stage 1, Grade 3, infiltrating ductal, ER/PR+ and HER 2 negative. In my right breast I had Stage 3, Grade 1, infiltrating lobular, ER/PR+, HER 2 negative. My mammoprint came back at high re-orrurance on the left and low re-occurance on the right. I've already had a mastectomy and I'm waiting on chemo/radiation. I go to my oncologist on May 2nd. Does anyone else have 2 different types of cancer in seperate breasts? I sort of feel like I'm alone since everything I've read focuses on just one or the other type. I really want to know what type of chemo works best in this situation. One doc said ACT treatment, other said CT treatment. ACT seems really scary, and I want to make sure I really need it vs. CT. Any advice?

Well, here goes. Saw the Chemotherapy Oncologist today. Didn't realize there were specialists within Oncology.

Friday, June 16 will be my first round of Chemo. I get three rounds of Fluorouracil, Epirubicin, and Cyclophosphamide. Then after that another three rounds of Docetaxel. CAT scan from last week shows something in my lumber spine. Oncologist thinks it could be a Hemangioma of the vertibrae. One thing she said that I thought was kind of odd was that if the cancer does come back it'll be stage IV.

And so it begins. Hoping that I'll be lucky with few side effects.
