    Me too, at age 31. I'm now cancer free after the summer of chemo, lumpectomy, now radiation just in case. Triple neg usually responds to chemo, mine was nearly gone before my final chemo infusion Best wishes

      I was stage IIb when it was found and after 6 rounds of chemo, I chose to have a double mastectomy with bilateral breast reconstruction with tissue expanders. At my 4 week check with the breast surgeon I was asked "I did I know?, I replied, know what? That even after chemo there was still cancer" I did not know. What I did know that with triple neg breast cancer the numbers were stacked against me and I did not want to be wondering and waiting for the retur. What had been found in the tissue could only be seen by the microscpoe and I would have had full blown cancer within a year. So for me I made the right choice. But at 52 on March 24th of this year I watched my beautiful daughter marry the man of her dreams and my hero as well. With out that choice it would not have been possible. It is not a choice for everyone and I did not make it lightly. I chose life over all else and my husband of only a few months held my hand and allowed me to wipe his tears and let me be what I needed to be at the time "The strong One" Love to you all in this trying time. Feel free to contact me. I will say the hardest part of it all was the tissue expanders and nobody told me.
