I'm not what your actual dx is/will be after pathology. Wishing you a quick healing!
As to your RADs question, even though for me my nodes came back negative, I still needed 4 weeks of Radiation. Everyone's case is different though, so I'm not sure what you will need of course, but it's still likely that some sort of RADs will be needed. At least that seems to be what is the usual protocol for IDC.
Oncologists have explained it to me that surgery treats you in the specific location, radiation treats you for generalized local spread, and endocrine therapy is the systemic treatment body wide.
Was there talk of RADs for you prior to your surgery? IMO if there was, I would think that would still be on the table.
Can you call your nurse navigator with your questions?
