      Your diagnosis type is different from mine, but I have had 3 recurrences. The numbers on recurrences are for a wide range of thousands of people and may not apply to you. Just as those numbers for my cancer didn't apple to me. I made it far longer than the numbers said I would before I had either a new cancer or a recurrence.

      As to cancer in general: statistics and prognosis apply to groups of patients - but to no one in particular. The last time I had a prognosis was 2009 and it was 'extremely poor' - 3 month median survival. This was before another relapse and two additional cancers. Someone survives every cancer.

      Be that someone.

      So, very sorry ....cancer bites! I am triple negative and stage 4 with recurence in sept. last year. Yesterday, keytruda was approved for triple negative ....ask your doc if this would apply for inflammatory breast cancer. I am on tecentriq at the moment after doing all the other stuff, another surgery, chemo and radiation. Don't be discouraged, there are plenty of people with inflammatory breast cancer that are doing just fine. There was a lady that had her own blog and started an organization for inflammatory, for the life of me i can't remember her name or the org, but i spoke to her, she was doing well, and i think it was 10 years into her diagnosis....her name was terry. I'll look and see if i can find info.
