It’s wonderful to find this forum. Thanks for creating such a helpful and safe space for people to connect.
I am 67 years old and received my diagnosis and treatment plan on June 28th. It has filled me with misgivings.
The diagnosis is Grade 3, invasive ductal carcinoma, oestrogen positive.
The treatment plan commences immediately with Letrozole. Surgery is in 6-8 weeks (advised most likely the end of August) - involving wide local excursion (lumpectomy) and sentinel lymph node removal. I have been told there’s a 6 week wait for the pathology results, followed by a 3 month wait before radiotherapy begins. Of course, after the first surgery I may need a second op, followed by another wait for pathology results and a delay in treatments.
My question is: Do these timescales seem long to you? Am I over-stressing about the waiting times?
Thanks for reading.
