Learning About Breast Cancer
I waited 7 yrs after I was dxd wit stage 1-2 dcis invasive. No nodes out of 22. Given less than 5% chance of recurrence That was 15 yrs ago. So after 7, I decided to play it "safe" and have a mastie with the other breast done prophylactic ally. At 13 yrs 9 mos cancer free I was dxd with mets to the bone. So much for low risk for recurrence. I had 14 months NED and then I began having back pain. I am now on my third time up for radiation and a new chemo shot called falsodex. Well it's been 15 yrs since my original dx and I'm still here. No organ involvement at this point. I wish you luck, love, and good health with NO RECURRANCES. God bless.
