LW422 Starting a new chemo drug soon, how are you holding up?
NatureYogi how did meeting with BS go, is he on board for the micro Vac? What did d he have to say?
BS said I achieved clean margins but not so sure about PCR because I see tumors mentioned below in pathology report. Even though they removed level 1 + 2 lymph nodes. READ below —- also My HER2 negative changed after surgery. I started as triple negative - inflammatory BC, so HER2 negative was a I.0 - after initial pathology came back changed to 2.0 neutral, so they did a supplemental FISH test - results just in I am now 2.1 so HER2 positive. Not sure what that means for treatment. I am meeting MO on 5/6 to go over treatment options. I don't have my mediport anymore because of skin infection so I have that to discuss with MO too. Not sure that they can put it same back in the same spot as before removing the scar tissue - I wouldn’t mind because I was left with a terrible scar.
I have to see BS in 3 weeks for FU then in 3 months because of dog ear left ON RIGHT side and it’s still swollen so she would she would do an in office procedure
