On May 10, 2019, I had surgery to remove the cancer and was declared NED - no evidence of disease. Surgery was only a small portion of my active treatment. In all, my active treatment involved three different oncologists and lasted about a year, including 8 rounds of chemotherapy, a lumpectomy and axillary lymph node dissection, and 6 weeks of radiation.
For 5-10 years post-treatment, I'll continue with hormone therapy to reduce my risk of recurrence. I also manage several ongoing side effects from treatment, including lymphedema.
