I have Grade 3, stage 2 the micro calcifications are 3cm in length. I'm ER and Her2 positive. I've chosen to have a double mastectomy if the cancer is in my nodes I have to have radiation. Has any one had the same type of cancer as me.

      How long did you have wait before you had your surgery? How do you feel?

      I had an excisional biopsy first and then it was almost 5 weeks for the mastectomy.

      I'm sore but okay I have my moments if depression. I just try to always believe I will be okay and there are people in this world that have it worse than me. The women on here will answer everything and give tips on how to do things and get thru it.

    You have more than a great chance and I've noticed that after surgery about 3 to 4 weeks to start chemo just depends on the doctors. It all sucks but you'll be okay. I'm waiting on staging and start my chemo. I had unilateral mastectomy.

    I am pretty close but add pr positive too and my tumor ended up being 1.4cm. I am almost 3 weeks post bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction and they found 2 positive lymph nodes so I will be also having radiation. I begin Chemo on Dec. 7th.
