Hi Rachelbest,

Welcome to our forum, although I'm sorry for the reason that has brought you here. It is good news that your lymph nodes were clear and that the cells surrounding the lump look clear.

Don't be afraid to ask all the necessary questions of your care team so that you can make an informed choice on whether or not to go for chemo. I hope that you manage to reach the right decision for you. Please let us know how your blood tests go and what you eventually decide. We ae always here for you.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi Zelda,

It's good to catch up on how you're doing. I'm sorry that you've had such a difficult time with your chemo and, had to cancel your last session.  However, it's good to hear that this has brought your surgery forward.  I expect that you'll be quite relieved to get to this stage at last.

I shall be thinking of you the second week in June and hope that it all goes well.

Kind regards,

Jolamine xx

Hi. I had this and was given a poor prognosis.  That was 15 years ago!! My lymph nodes were infected as well.. 

I have a new triple negative in my other breast that was removed just over a week ago. I don't know if in the lymph nodes as yet..I got 15 years cancer free so I'm willing to go through it all again. The odd thing about hair loss was it didn't bother me much until my eye lashes went. It's totally amazing that it recovers so fast. As soon as chemo stops you will soon notice a fuzz returning. Hair loss is such a small price to pay. Be bald and proud.. good luck

Wow that's lovely to hear your doing so well. I was finished with treatment or so I thought but I start oral chemo on Wednesday as a preventative measure with being high risk. I'll take it if it means keeping this at bay then throw it all at me.


Keep well

Hi Patrice,

It makes me happy that telling my experience has helped you!  Everyone's journey through this is different and yet the same. 

I hope your first chemo treatment went well.  First one was rough for me as I had misunderstood how the instructions on the nausea meds and I ended up in the triage needing 2 bags of fluids.  But after that, I had it under control. 

Best wishes for a quick recovery.  Keep us posted on your journey.

Hi Kem,

This is an amazing story, thank you so much for sharing. I myself have just been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, stage 1 grade 3. Im 32 with a 2 year old daughter so did not see this coming! Its been a few days now since diagnosis, and i have a treatment plan in place. Whilst we are still in some degree of shock, we are bloody determined on fighting this! Well I don’t have a choice, my daughter needs her mama! Its stories like yours that give me so much encouragement, positivity is going to get us through this. So thank you for sharing your story.

MHi Kem

I have Just been diagnosed with triple negative grade 3 breast cancer 57mm! So big and aggressive . I start chemotherapy next week for a total of 24 weeks ! I’ve read some posts of other ladies having similar . They’ve said although the lymph nodes they’ve biopsied clear

scans have shown a suspicious node they’ve maybe missed on biopsy . They’ve also found 3 internal mammary nodes ? Wondered if anyone else has had a similar diagnosis . Long road ahead as they’ve said mastectomy plus radiotherapy post op once 24 wks of chemo finished . 


I just wanted to say Kem your post was inspirational and has lifted my spirits so much as someone on the beginning of this journey , my little girl is 6 years old and I’ve been utterly terrified but you have given me strength today to beat this disease . 


Love and sunshine
