Where to go after Mastectomy?
  • Public Group
  • Chemotherapy
  • Hi Im Jessica Im 35 whose Cancer journey began in December of 2019. After full work up for a lump I found in my left breast; they did mammograms, ultrasound and MRI and now there was a second lump in the same breast and an enhancement in the right. Biopsied it all and Diagnosis is Invasive ductal carcinoma in situ ER+, PR+ and HER2+ on the left nothing on the right breast. On February 12th, I had a Bilateral Mastectomy with Reconstruction and sentinel nodes pathology was negative for the 2 removed..Thankfully all went well. I have several more post op appointments for my reconstruction. We met with an oncologist for a first opinion and have several others lined up. Right now it seems like next step in the treatment plan will be chemo with taxol and Herceptin. Any information on chemo vs no chemo with just single lined therapy? What other options were others given in same situation? Im researching but overwhelmed a bit.

  • Doctors diagnosed me with stage 2 breast cancer estrogen + on my right breast. Treatment plan was chemo, surgery lumpectomy, radiation and take a pill for 5 years. I just finished with chemotherapy and had an MRI scan. They are asking me if I want to do a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction. I don’t know what’s the best thing to do. They haven’t even discussed to me about my results or if the tumor decreased or had an effect. I’m only 25 and of course I’m thinking about breast feeding when I have kids in the future.

  • Hello! I have been recently diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma- My head is flooded with questions, so I don't really know where to begin. I have found out I am ER and PR positive and awaiting HERS2 results. I have the option of having a Lupectomy or Mastectomy and I find that decision overwhelming. Is there anyone going through something similar? Or had to make that decision and they chose wisely? I feel very lucky that mine was caught early but I have so many questions about reaccurrence... just thought I would put myself out there and share info!

  • I'd like to talk with other women who have ILC, Invasive Lobular Carcinoma. I was initially told this is a slow growing type that doesn't respond well to chemo. But now, after a mastectomy and with 6 lymph nodes involved, I'm told I do have to have very aggressive chemo. Thoughts?
