    Hello from AZ. I'm sorry you are dealing with this. I was diagnosed with TNBC in 2018 and finished treatment last summer. You will get through this! I hope you have great support. Ask lots of questions. Your oncologist should not have any problem taking the time to answer all your concerns. There is also a lot of great info and support on this website.

    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): Easy peasy lemon squeezy.

    Procedure or Surgery (Sentinel lymph node biopsy): Taking out 2 nodes was so much more painful than the lumpectomy. Side effect a nerve trigger point was impacted. Still at 3 weeks later I have severe nerve pain in my arm and shoulder. Devastating unresolvable pain.

    Procedure or Surgery (Lumpectomy): Not as bad as I had built up in my head.

    Oh No (Health insurance issue): Medicare doesn't want to cover me getting treatment at my place of choice. Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
