Welcome and sorry....bout #2, ugh. WHo needs it.
My tumor was ER/PR+ so I don't know as much about
the triple negative....the thing is, all of BC is serious. There is no way to tell if yours will be worse than mine or give you greater or lesser chance of mets. The doctors will do their best to give you stats and put it all into a neat package of statistics to try and help suggest what may happen, but truth is, you are just you, not a statistic.
That being said...I know women who had very early stages of cancer and have since passed on, while others amazingly have defied the odds and remained cancer free for years and years. So in all likelihood, negative nodes will give you a better chance to remain free of mets, but there are no guarantees. Node negative is important. As for hormone or her2 negative, well there are lots of stats and we just don't know where you'll fall in that range...
So...plan on living a long full and cancer free life and stick around...let us know how you're doing and if we can help!
