What can be done if there are still positive lymphnodes after neoadjuvant chemo (4 taxol and 4 FEC before mastectomy)? They are going to do radiation, but what about the cells that might still be in your body.
I ask the same question, except: I did not have chemotherapy until AFTER my one breast mastectomy. I just completed my 8 chemo treatment, and am now ready for radiation, then anti-cancer pill. .
CHEMO medicines were:
(1st four, adriamycin/cytoxin last 4 Taxotere)
ALSO: 15 nodes were removed and 14 were positive. How do I know there are not more positive nodes that were not removed from my body?
