Calling Doc tommorow to tell them to get moving my Plastic Surgeon said he will do what it takes to get me in asap even if he has to do an afternoon surgery, but still no word from the Breast Surgeon who has told me they are working on it! auughh the waiting is the worst I just want this ticking bomb out!

Here is one link showing cancer can spread not only thru the lymph nodes but through the blood also.
 
I had a couple of links for this info but don't have them anymore.  You might check the TNBC News/Resource section, there you will find alot of info.

April,

Hello and welcome.  What Pam said is true, unfortunately.  It's one of the reasons why chemo is almost always recommended for TNBC, even with negative nodes.  The good news (I guess) is that TNBC usually responds well to chemo.  We don't have any adjuvant therapy like Tamoxifen that will work on us. 

Have you had the chance to review the brochure about TNBC?

Hi, yes, but again i am NOT a doctor, but my understanding is that TNBC is also vascular which means it can either travel thru the lymph system as well as the blood stream.  That is one of the reasons they hit it hard with Chemo.  Anyone with more knowledge can chime in here if they can give more info then I am.

Also, most women when finished with treatment usually see their doctors about every three months for 6 mo. to a year and then every 6 months for a year or so.

I am so sorry that you are having to digest all this, but we on this site have BEEN THEE, so feel free to lean on us for as much support as you need <3
