This is my first blog.
Hi my name is Jodie and I'm 42. I found my lump 5 weeks ago and everything has moved very fast since. I have been diagnosed with grade 3 ductal infiltrating carcinoma, stage 2a, triple negative bc. I had a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy 2 weeks ago, one from three lymph nodes involved. I will have a portacath put in this week and chemo starts August 3rd. AC 4 doses over 12 weeks followed by paclitaxel once a week for 12 weeks. This will be followed by radiation, double mastectomy and reconstruction should I choose. I have a strong family history of bc and my mum is BRCA 1 positive. I am waiting for test results to see if I also carry the gene.
Am so glad that this website exist. The information available and being able to read the blogs has been extremely helpful
