In brief: Prognosis is good!

I would need more information to be definitive but with a small primary tumor (stage 1) and only micrometastasis in one node, your prognosis should be relatively good.
Since you received TCH, it is obvious that you had her2 positive breast cancer so your prognosis is less favorable than had her2 not been positive. However, 5 year survival in excess of 85% is shown in recent studies with TCH.
