Hello All - First sorry everyone is here. Today was my oldest son's 30th birthday and started out great remembering that great event. Then all the tragedy in Conn, and also the police officers shot down in Memphis, where my youngest lives. Then a call from my breast health navigator with oncotype results. This is my second cancer. First in 2008, lumpectomy, chemo taxotere/cytoxan, radiation, tamoxifen for 4 years. Then this fall found a discharge on my bra, other side. Originally thought to be benign papilloma, but also found IDC. Decided on BMX and tissue expanders a little over 3 weeks ago.
Now tumor is a lot like my last one ER/PR+ HER2-, 4 lymph nodes all negative....so they were just thinking aromatase inhibitor....now today oncotype is 31.....will know more Monday....but looks like chemo - AGAIN.
I am very healthy, in fact I teach it....
Right now kind of dazed......thanks for a place to vent...
