Would love to hear your stories!  Especially, if you were young at diagnosis. 

Thanks for being an inspiration!  :)

I had a lumpectomy with lymph node removal in January 2006.  I was stage 2b and although I was dxed in July 2007 with bone mets, I am doing amazingly well despite my cancer drawback... 

Hope this helped. Take care and many hugs.

Dx 6/5/2007, 4cm, Stage IV, Grade 3, 2/30 nodes, mets, ER+/PR-, HER2-

I had a lumpectomy and full dissection in october, 2004 (stage IIb as well) and have been NED ever since and doing great. I was 42 at diagnosis, don't know if it counts as young. Remember there is no difference in survival between lumpectomy and rads and mastectomy.

Jpann, I like your motto.  Very appropriate.

It's nearly five years since my lumpectomy and I'm doing fine.

My sister had a lumpectomy in 1999. She was diagnosed at age 51. She is doing great. I had my lumpectomy in december 2007 and just finished rads. I am doing great also and hope to be a long term survivor.

I am glad to read all of these stories. I had a lumpectomy and worry that I didn't take the most agressive course of action.
