I agree with the previous posts that you should read Dr. Susan Love's book. Great resources. I will tell you that your dx is very similar to what mine was. Feb. 05 I found out I had bc, had a lumpectomy which the pathology report showed invasive ductal carcinoma and also ductal carcinoma in situ. My surgeon explained that the DCIS had broken out in one place and had become the invasive part, but the rest of my breast happened to be filled with DCIS. There wasn't much possibility of getting all of the margins clean, and I had already made up my mind to have a mastectomy and chose to go bilateral. Never have regretted it at all!
I was 40 at dx, highly er+ and pr+. Any questions, I'd be glad to answer. Remember, everyone's cancer is different, and we all choose and respond to treatments differently. My thoughts and prayers will be with you. Hang in there!!!!!!
