Hey Sugmit, glad to hear all of your margins are clear. The debate to do chemo after this type of result is always a hot topic. This would be a great question to ask the community which you can do by clicking the QUESTIONS tab at the top of the page. Again, comgratulations on your results and welcome to WhatNext!!

Sugmit shared an experience
Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): Drains are still in. Will be removed next week. Chemo will begin in January. Surgeon says got all the cancer, and margins were clear. Surgeon and Oncologist recommended Chemo. Somewhat skeptical about it but it has been scheduled.
I am quite active for my age, but I am concerned about the quality of my life for next couple of years.
