    Yep. Hang in there. Read and eat good stuff and don't add to your receptors. I think that's about all we can do. We do the best we can. Wishing you a good team

    I know that's scary Allison. I had 13 out of 15 as well. Has your Onc suggested more chemo?

      I have completed 8 rounds of chemo April 2013. Now I will do radiation later this month.

      What did you do?

      I read your bio after I asked what treatments you had. We sound so much alike. One of my nodes had cancer break through it as well. I go for a PET scan tomorrow to see if cancer metastasized. I'm nervous.

      Hi Allison, yes our stories are similar. I had stage 3c and began with 8 rounds of chemo, then a bilateral mastectomy. After finding so many positive nodes my Onc recommended more chemo with 2 different drugs. Gemzar and Carboplatin. After completing 8 rounds, I had my radiation treatment. I had 2 clean PET scans. :). I had reconstruction last Sept. and was doing fine. Then the last of Oct. It was time for my regular PET scan. It was then that I found my cancer had returned. Don't let that discourage you. I know you're nervous about tomorrow. There are tons of stage 3 ladies that don't have reocurrances and go on to live their lives cancer-free. And them some with stage 1 who have a metastasis years later. We can only do what we can do....and go on to live our lives. Know that I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers for tomorrow. You got this! And with God's grace, my friends, my wonderful husband, children, and my "sisters" I'm still fighting the good fight! Hugs Allison, please let me know how you are.

    Allison, I am sorry for what you are going through. I hope that your scan will be clear, and that radiation will wipe out any remaining cancer cells. With strength and the good treatments available today, you will beat this !
