    Cancer has spread/Metastasized

    Initially, I was told it was contained, then the next day the surgeon told me it started to spread.

    Whether I wanted to have chemotherapy or not

    Decision Point

    I decided after finding out my recurrance score was 25, nodes were negative, and cancer was no longer in my breast to go without the chemo and take the hormone therapy.
