    No way to give a good answer here. Despite the ststistics, every woman is different. Your cancer is medium-range serious; and it sounds like you're getting the current standard of treatment. I'd say you should speak to your oncologist about what the data shows for 5-year survival rates for women with your diagnosis; he/she can take that data, then add your own personal pathology and probably give you a reasonable answer. Good luck - and stay in touch here. We can help - PJH
