Invasive Lobular Carcinoma in Breast & Lymph Nodes

I just had a masectomy, without the need of chemo.  Two of twenty lymph nodes were biopsied, though they consider all twenty at 13% contaminated within.  Question, can the Ameridex medicine that I will be on, starve these cancers cells to death over the next five years without taking the other eighteen nodes removed and advoiding chemo?  I don't want to have chemo or have the 20% side effects of women, whom have no lymph nodes.  The doctor did not want to use the chemo for the masectomy, but for the lymph nodes.
