I joined a few months ago and reading many posts but only now taking the plunge to introduce myself. I am a 50yo woman who was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma Feb 2020, stage IIIb. I have completed 7 rounds of neoadjuvant CT, and in August had a mastectomy with axillary node dissection. Pathology from the surgery has come back and I responded very well to the neoadjuvant CT with no cancer found in my breast and a minute amount in 2 lymph nodes. Trying to decide now if I should go forward with radiation. I do recall seeing a discussion about declining radiation on this site so will try to track that down again.
I am a wife, a mom of two amazing teenagers / young adults, and have a dog. I love to hike, ski, ride my bike, watch great TV, read, garden, and spend time with my friends and family. I was formerly working full time but i am now off as I work through this journey.
