I'm trying to learn all I can about triple +.
I was diagnosed with IDC on 1/13. I had my lumpectomy and axillary node dissection on 1/27. I should receive final pathology on that tomorrow. My surgeon believes he got clear margins and my initial SNB was clear. My tumor was <1cm so I was very, very blessed to find it so early.
I'm morbidly obese. I could easily lose 100lbs. I crigne everytime someone comes down hard on a fat girl with BC. I've always struggled with weight but it really got out of control after my daughter's drowning death in 2003. Having PCOS and hypothyroid has added to the mess.
I was walking EVERYDAY for 35 minutes before my diagnosis. I'm getting back to walking tomorrow. I guess I'm a wimp because I still feel a little weak after my surgery (4 days ago)
I'm not even sure what tripe + means. My surgeon keeps telling me how positive all my news is and how my final pathology will determine the need for chemo. But triple + pretty much guarantees chemo, right?
