Hi Anon

Thank you for your question and welcome to EmpowHER. 

Some women do not get chemo if their cancer was caught early (and it was contained) and surgery was able to remove the tumors completely. 

How did your surgery go? Did you receive the all clear? You need to sit down with your oncologist to discuss on going care. 

Will you keep us posted, Anon?
