In April I was diagnosed with bilateral Grade 3 High Grade DCIS 12mm in both breasts with no microinvasion.
After WLE in both breasts with a resection in one to get a clear margin (as they originally only did a WLE biopsy in one side because it was thought to be just abnormal cells), I have just finished 3 weeks of radiotherapy bilaterally.
After initially being told that I only needed WLE as long as it was a clear margin, when it came back as high grade I was then strongly advised to have radiotherapy both sides.
In a number of letters to my GP from the MDT, of which I got copies, the treatment plan kept changing. At first just surgery, then surgery plus radio and then surgery plus radio plus tamoxifen.
when I saw my oncologist for the first time, she said that it was in the balance whether tamoxifen was beneficial. So it was my choice and I choose not to take tamoxifen.
Has anyone else decided to take/not take tamoxifen. I am very confused
