choice of treatment
I had surgery 4 weeks ago to remove large tumor from breast. Pathology came came back triple negative stage TA2, grade 3, with a clear margine 10 lymph nodes were also taken and all clear. I was under the impression radiation was the go and then all finished. Yesterday was my first oncology visit and I was told I'd need 6 rounds of chemo before radiation. Now I'm very confused. Why do I need chemo if there's no sign of cancer anywhere in my body? I'd be interested in talking to anyone who has refused chemo or who has had a similar cancer and decided to have chemo.
