      Tnbc also only responds to chemo. I don't understand why some doctors have their patients do radiation treatments. If after 2 yrs of remission.....you are pretty much in the clear! I start doing my test of my blood fir cancer every 3 months for the next two years. Hopefully I will not have any reoccurrence.

      Hi Janeti,
      I have had triple negative breast cancer but instead of the hormone receptors HER2 Positive: Yes, ER Positive: Yes, PR Positive: the cancer is not affected by the female hormones. It doesn't care and estrogen will not effect it's growth. But it is a more virolent form of cancer which usualy grows more rapidly and the cancer cells them selves are more mutated and less resemble breast tissue. I have had my 4 months of chemo. the mastectomy and am now strting 5 1/2 weeks of radiation treatments. And I hope to be ready for reconstruction by early summer. I will see depending on the skin damage done by the radiation treaments. It's a chance I have to take. I hope this answered your question at least a little.
