The Treatment Plan

Posted in Uncategorized by

This post will be short and sour. I promise I find some rainbows in the days to follow. Friday comes and we sit down with Dr. Kiluk. I have Stage IIB Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, PR-, ER- Her-, with a nuclear grade of 3. So what do all these things mean? Basically  it means that hormone therapy will not work for me since this tumor is negative in all three categories (PR,ER,HER). I have what is called Triple Negative Breast Cancer-it accounts for 15% of breast cancer. Leave it to me to not be in the norm-it was never my style anyway.  Unfortunately, I can’t take a magic pill and the tumor will slowly disappear. As it stands right now, I have 4 months of chemo, followed by surgery, followed by radiation and somewhere in there a new set boobs. However, the PET Scan & MRI results showed that the cancer has not spread! Thank you Lord Jesus!

Dr. Kiluk describes it as a marathon and I just came around the first mile.

    Did got diagnosed May13th (I think I read that in another blog post) at age 33. I got diagnosed at 33 years old with the exact same thing and prescribed the exact same treatment. Next week is my third chemo treatment. How about you?my only difference is it spread to my lymph nodes (6 had it). They removed all of level 1 and 2 nodes. I a, scared to death I will get lymphedema or that a cell escaped elsewhere. Thanks for following me so that I could follow you. 🙂

      Yes, it was 5/13 I’m 31. I just turned 31 on April 19. Cancer was living in my body at 30! Any age is too young in my opinion 🙂 I just had my third treatment Thursday. I’m more tired and achey this round than the last. You’ll have to let me know how you’re feeling…
