I had chemo which started in June for breast cancer, then 2 wks ago I had a single mastectomy and diep reconstruction. I was doing well and getting stronger daily but today I had meeting with consultant and I found out that out of the 5 lymph nodes they removed, 3 had microscopic cancer cells so they want to remove all my nodes in a couple of weeks.
I was told that chemo had worked amazingly well but obviously not so well in the nodes.
I'm petrified that this news means it has or will spread. Just looking for anyone else who has been in this situation or can reassure me.
I thought I was coming to the end of treatment and feel shocked with this news.
Thanks everyone x
