So sorry for your diagnosis. Since you've been around the bend before, you have to know that there must be treatment and a course of action. From what I have read, A/C is only given one time (thank God). Since your nodes are gone, it proably hasn't gone anyplace else. My guess is a mastectomy will be the recommendation. I suppose that's why so many gals do it in the first place. I didn't myself and don't regret it at all. You and I had the same original diagnosis/treatment. So glad you are doing self examinations. That's what we ALL should be doing every single week! I know I do.
Please let us know the test results. Please know you are in my prayers. I feel in my gut you will be OK. Sounds like it was caught quickly.
Lots of HUGS.
