Mixed Results

The good news: no cancer present in the lymph nodes, and the lumpectomy margins are clean. The not so good news: inside the margins did show a few cancer cells, and due to my age and other risk factors, the doctors at this point are recommending chemotherapy. I was pretty sure I had dodged that bullet when I heard "lymph nodes negative" and "clean margins". Four rounds of chemo, starting in about a month, followed by six weeks of radiation.
