Follow up from Surgery

Today I went to the Surgeon to have a follow up from surgery. My L breast has accumulated fluid in it, so he had to drain it. Interesting!!! The PATH report was back and Ihad 1 lymph node out of 6 come back with cancer. The margins from the tissue removed were 4mm all around except 1 area that was only 1mm. NOT MUCH. So really the margins were not clear. Dr Spier suggested another lumpectomy or mastectomy. Wow here we go again. Also found out that I was HER2 (-) PR (-) and ER (-). Typically called Triple NEGATIVE.

I decided to have a L modified radical mastectomy.
