Hi Sarah, I had the same as you. One node affected with LV invasion which like you I didn't really take on board till a lot later. I panicked when I googled too, but I'm now 6 months post chemo and feel really well.( I always say that with fingers crossed!) my onc has said I have a good prognosis and I try to focus on that. I tell myself that chemo has dealt with any nasty invaders elsewhere and that tamoxifen will keep anything at bay. Not easy, but I have tried to train myself to focus on the positive!
Hi Sarah, I'm glad you got the answers you needed and was going to say chemo after surgery makes perfect sense re lymph nodes so they've taken care of it for you already. I found out from my lovely GP today (who rang me to say she was sorry about my diagnosis) that unless you very specifically tell your team that you want to know absolutely everything they err on the side of only telling you a bit.

Good idea Sarah04 - hopefully they'll be able to put your mind at rest instead of you sitting worrying about it all. I honestly can't think that it's that important if it hasn't been specifically mentioned by anyone before now, but you are definitley doing the right thing.
