      I cannot...
      I am having a double mastectomy tomorrow - gack - I can't believe it's tomorrow already!!!!
      Anyway, I had a triple negative tumor.
      Went through chemo first - now surgery.
      I'm so sorry for your diagnosis.
      I can imagine that tailoring chemo for two different breast cancers is difficult.... and stressful for you.

      I had double mastectomy a year ago, no reconstruction. I was very lucky. I had DCIS in several places in the left breast that had progressed to Stage 1, and only a very large area of DCIS very, very close to the chest wall in the right breast. Negative Sentinel lymph nodes. No chemo needed. After 3 radiation oncologist consultations and a call directly to the pathologist, I decided not to have any radiation. No hormone therapy warranted either.
      So, like I say, I was very lucky AND made the best decision for myself. I don't know if I could be of any help to you or not, but I wish you well, and you are welcome to contact me if you want to discuss more.

      Yes...you can connect with me! I had what I call a "smorgasboard" of cancers going on and in both breasts. Inflammatory, DCIS, comedo, IDC....different pathologies too- triple negative, ER/PR- and Her 2+.
      I was diagnosed almost 7 years ago - had a double MRM in July of 2005 and 6 months later had DIEP reconstruction.
      Hope, Hugs & Healing, Krysti

      Here I am! I had two separate cancers with some of the same as well. I had a double mastectomy and 1 was HR2 positive. What stage are you? How can I help you?

      Hi. I just joined this group and this question was on the right side of my page. Wow...there are no coincidences in life! I share your diagnosis. Just celebrated 3 years of remission and feel amazingly healthy and very blessed. Anything I can share with you, please don't hesitate to ask. Many blessings to you and continued health.
