I'm still here nearly five years after diagnosis. Not only did I have a triple negative, grade 3 tumor, I also had six ( Six!!) hormone positive tumors that were grade 2. As my breast surgeon put it, I seem to be a cancer factory. Did five months of IV chemo, bilateral mastectomy and then five more months of the oral chemo Xeloda. No radiation or AIs, by my choice.
I still have moments of depression, anxiety and the very occasional bout of absolute panic. But mostly I'm okay. I'm trying hard to just live my life and not let the cancer take anything else away from me.
Ignore the doomsayers. Unless they've walked in your shoes, they have no credibility whatsover. If you're really concerned, talk to your oncologist.
