Hi, Cindy 48years, 10 miles from Lincoln Nebraska
Dx 2-1-05 IDC nottingham combined grade 2/3 1.1cm. ER+/PR+/HER2-.
Chemo first before surgery had 4 rounds Adriamycin/Cytoxan and 4 rounds of Taxol. Had Surgery 6-6-05 they removed 7 nodes all were neg. Recovering from surgery now and will have 6 weeks of radiation starting sometime around the first of July 05.
At the time of DX they measured the tumor 4cm after 8 rounds of chemo it shrink to 1.1cm woo woo. When it was removed they said the margins were clean and neg of cancer.

Diagnosis is Stage II infiltrating lobular breast cancer. Surgery should be the Friday Sept 2, 2005. I will have an overnight stay at the hospital. Just had MRI on 8/22 of both breasts, so not sure yet wheter I will come out with one or no breasts. Nodes look fine on US. Will have chemo after surgery and maybe a little rads to axilla. I'm betting ER/PR +, but no results yet. 93% of this B/C is ER/PR positive.
Just cut my male companion of 4 years loose. I wasn't that into him ---didn't see him in my future and it got to the point (real fast) that I didn't feel I could deal with him and his needs and myself as well. Had to chose, so chose myself.

Chantry from about 1hour southwest of Toronto, Canada. 35 years old. Found a lump when I was 7 mos pregnant (April 2005) with first (and probably only?? ) child. Ultrasound Dr. thought it was a fibroid, but due to extensive bc in my family, I pushed for a biopsy, which came back as "inconclusive". When into surgery not knowing if it was cancer or not (I was pretty sure it was), so only opted for a Lumpectomy (Aug 2). Finally have full details from surgery:
Invasive Ductal carcinoma, high grade 2.2 cm, no nodes, ER- , waiting for Her2 neu results. Plan of attack - AC +T, and depending on genetic testing, radiation or masectomy...and hysterectomy too???
Family history - (I was adopted at birth, and didn't know about the following until last year. What timing!!)
4 of my fathers aunts died of cancer. 2 from breast cancer (both under 40), 1 from a brain tumor, 1 from lung cancer. My fathers sister also died from breast cancer at age 38.
Looking for info on all of this. What a bummer. But my daughter (born May 31) is the light of my life, and my husband is my rock. Hoping to live past 40...unlike some of my biological family.
