Welcome to the board, sorry for the reason that you found us. Yes, everything seems to happen very fast. I was diagnosed October 28th, 2014 and had my surgery November 20th, 2014. I was diagnosed as stage 2a. My oncologist and I decided that the benefits of chemo outweighed the risks(side effects) in my case. There are many on here who are going through chemo or have gone through chemo who can give you advise.
