Hello -

I had neoadjuvant chemo and had 4 positive nodes AFTER chemo. All the scans had only showed one node + . I am wondering if other nodes had cleared due to chemo if there would be scarring to show that cancer HAD been there. 4 positive nodes are bad enough, but my fear is that there were even more.

Dx 4/19/2019, IDC, Right, 3cm, Stage IIB, Grade 2, ER+/PR+, HER2- (FISH) Chemotherapy 5/5/2019 TAC
