Hi..I had Stage 1 with Pagets of the breast. While doing your mastectomy does the surgeon check your nodes in your chest area as well? I heard Pagets can go there first via blood? Is this common. Your centinode is a check for your auxilliary nodes. What about the other nodes?

DX: Stage1A, Grade 2, Centinode 0/3 negative. With Pagets. Left side Mastectomy Nov. 4/16 with reconstruction. Suffered infection and expander removed Dec. 2016. Weekly Taxol x12 with Herceptin every 3 weeks for 17 weeks. ER- PR-, HER+
