Cheri N Posted February 19 Share Posted February 19 I was diagnosed with Stage II one year ago. I have never smoked, worked with toxic substances or have a family history of cancer. I do have heart issues however. Fortunately I was able to have robotic surgery to remove the cancer. Upon analysis what was thought to be a lymph node turned out to be a second tumor and it also was removed. I underwent 30 radiation treatments and 3 chemo treatments. I was initially supposed to have 4 treatments however the chemo caused me to have serious fatigue. Because of my age, will be 75 in May, my oncologist didn’t recommend having the last treatment and started me on Tagresso, a targeted therapy. The main side effect is fatigue. I am grateful for the care that I am receiving from Stanford Health. Tom Galli 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
