I'm so sorry to hear you are going through this again. I know how you are feeling at the moment, I had a second bc in my "good" breast in 2015, five years after the first one. It's numbing when you find out, possibly even worse than the first time, as you know what is ahead of you this time.
I swore I wasn't going to do chemo again when I found out the lump was cancer. My first one was triple positive and chemo was not easy for me. I told my husband - sorry, can't do this again.
When the path came back triple negative this time, I thought about it for a while and decided I would give chemo a try. Each treatment I vowed (sometimes aloud) that I was not going back for the next one, but I did.
If yours is 2cm and not HER2+ then there's a good chance you won't need to do chemo - especially if your lymph nodes are clear. No guarantees though.
Whatever it turns out to be though - know we are here for you. I'll second Racy's invitation to come on over to the Aussie Girls page and say hello.
