Sorry, I clearly need to do a better job proof reading … I don’t have enough information yet to be talking about stages. Stage is a measure of the progression of the disease, and more needs to be known. I’m guessing stage 2 based on the size of the tumor on the left breast, but that hasn’t been confirmed yet.
I did have confirmation that I have cancer in both breasts – so both breasts are grade 3 invasive ductal carcinoma (IDC) – which I shall now refer to as IDC cause the other is too hard to type.
I am awaiting (numb to feelings at the moment) the results on the receptors. I’m hoping for a positive on something at this point, as the receptors tell the oncologists which types of chemotherapy work.
