Yup. My KI67 was in the upper 90's. 97, maybe? I tried hard not to think about it. But here I am, getting ready to mark five years since diagnosis on August 29th. On April 4th, 2022 I hope to celebrate five years at NED (No Evidence of active Disease). That's when your risk of reoccurrence/metastasis drops back down the same as any other woman your age.
My chemo buddy just celebrated her five years NED this month. She was in her forties when diagnosed; I was in my fifties. We're both still standing. Bruised and battered, but still here.
High KI67 is scary as hell, but it does have an upside. It can really respond well to aggressive chemo.
If you haven't already, check out the TNBC threads. Great for info and support.
