Hi there.

Judginf from the histopath report, it seems that your disease is already in stage III (due to the amount of involved lymph nodes and the size of the main tumor).  It is indeed helpful that you received adjuvant chemotherapy for this.  Another negative prognostic factor in your case is the involvement of the deep margins.  This can hasten recurrence and increase over all chance of local failure and cancer spread.  I suggest that you discuss with your doctor regarding further treatment in the form of radiation therapy..
