Posted by debby100 @debby100, Feb 6, 2023

Hi just had a 2 tumor lumpectomy and sentinel lymph node removal. I am waiting to meet with surgeon Friday. In the meantime I’m able to read the the tumor report online . I know you shouldn’t Google stuff but I need to get familiar with things I’m not aware of till now. My k167 is high -LvI present-DCIS
High estrogen positive
Doing a fish test . A lot to take in

Sending love! I too had her+ diagnosis in April 2022, stage 2 and grade 2. Had 6 chemo treatments of perjeta and herceptin, mastectomy (my choice for bilateral), my pathology showed lvi multi focal. Breast was clean, had positive residual of 7 lump nodes, did 3 wks radiation and now doing kadcyla (TDM1). I go Tues for round 7. Will have 7 more to go. Mood and emotions much better than it was after diagnosis. I reached out to this group multiple times and have read others successful stories which gave me hope.
I also entered vaccine study for her2+ to prevent recurrence.


Friday surgeon said yes I’ll need chemo. After first biopsies nov 17 the outlook was surgery radiation and hormone blocker . Surgery was Jan 26 after the tumors were tested I am now Her2 positive.
2 more cancer spots and 45mm underneath
LIV. …..Present
Nuclear grade high
Things are different now this is harder to accept than I originally thought.
Monday go to oncologist for the plan

Having and executing “the plan” helps reduce the anxiety after the trauma of a breast cancer diagnosis. I’ll be keeping you in my thoughts. Blessings on the path. 🌸
