Cartmel priory and Cartmel races beautiful neck of the woods.
I came to live and work in Cumbria long ago, Coniston - fell in love with all of its beauty and never left.
I am on the Solway side these days, Silloth, Allonby being my sea walking areas, you can walk for miles and never see another person (Bliss).
Hope all goes well for you, one thing I have learned here is how different from place to place the treatment seems to be.

Thank you Poppy, and hello to Cumbria. My family history is all connected to Cartmel and I have such a love for the area.
I had an MRI scan after my last chemo think it was about 4 weeks after is that the scan you mean mine was to determine lump size before surgery.
Ask your breast care nurse if unsure.
I'm afraid I don't know the answer to your question. I didn't have chemo - but Surgery, rt and tamoxifen - I certainly didn't have a mammo or scan at the end of treatment, but your situation might be entirely different. I am bumping your post back up, as you've not had a reply - hoping that someone sees it who can offer advice.
I am about to have my penultimate chemo and have oncologist meeting in diary. These meetings are so rushed that I’m getting my questions written up now!
I want to know if patients are offered a scan at the end of chemo (I’m not doing radio)? I want the reassurance that there is no cancer left in my torso at all.
I did have clear margins on surgery and no lymph node affected but I was luminal b (ie it was on the move and could hv gone through blood vessels)
anyone have any experience of a scan post treatment in similar circumstances? I suppose I am trying to gauge whether it’s worth me pushing for one for my peace of mind (if they don’t offer it as standard?)
