Survivor since 2012
We are a rare breed! I had infiltrating lobular carcinoma. Stage 1, grade 1. I had a lumpectomy. My margins were clear and so was my sentinal lobe. I had six weeks of radiation therapy and I just finished my first month on Tamoxifin. From what I understand, bc in the lobes is not as common as that found in the ducts. So far, I feel blessed. My recovery from surgery went well and radiation just wore me out a little. Starting to feel a few side effects from tamoxifen, but if it is beneficial to take it, I will suffer through the side effects! Good luck to you and Nancy! Make your list of questions for the surgeon, Radiation Oncologist, Oncologist, Gynocoloist...and anyone else you can think of! Keep in touch and I will be thinking of you both!
