      I had triple negative, stage 3, in lymph nodes. My tumor was very large, so the first step was chemo to shrink everything down. After 4 months of aggressive chemo, I had a bilateral mastectomy, and 5 weeks of daily radiation. My next stop (coming up), will be reconstruction. Hang in there....it will be ok.
