    Change of diagnosis after surgery and new pathology

    Oh No

    I was originally diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and was told I had to have chemotherapy before surgery. They told me after chemo that if there was no sign the cancer had spread after the surgery that I probably wouldn't need further treatment after radiation, just observation. Now they are saying I need infusions every 3 weeks for a year and a pill a day for 5 years.

    Decision Point

    Now I have to decide if the new treatment plan is something I want to go along with. It has lots of side effects and it is only a preventative measure.
