hi sandia and summer ..thanku so much for you encourging replies ...same happend to me whn i visited my surgeon and oncologist they said your cancer was just stage 1 and its gone actually and whn i asked thm about LVI they said dont worry about it ...its nothing...oncologist said because of your young age we will give you 8 cycles of chemo thn radiations and thn tablet so that it never happen again ...goning to start my chemo from next week ...fingures crossed 🙂
I have extensive LVI which scares me but when I bring it up with the oncologist or the chemo nurses they don't seem overly concerned about it. In fact they seem confident that they will be able to cure my breast cancer and say I have a good prognosis. They say that chemo will take care of any stray cells that may have escaped. Think LVI means that the actual tumour has developed its own blood vessels in which cancer cells can be transported in. However this may have not happened and even if it did then chemo will mop any cancer cells.
My friend had BC about six years ago with LVI and she is still cancer-free today 🙂
floos tahnkuu so much for your rply ..i will have chemo and then radiations ...i am single and virgin 😞 i just want to be okay ...i want to be strong ...at some times i just cant control myself and strt crying 😞 really happy to listen from yu ... i am so hopefull ...May God give al of us full recovery and i wish that it never came back ...
Hi Rabia, so sorry to hear you are feeling so worried. I am much older than you but have a daughter who will be 25 shortly so couldn't just read your post and not comment. I had several lumps so had a mastectomy with reconstruction and had 2out of 4 lymph nodes positive with LVI. I had chemo, rads and herceptin which dealt with the cancer (touch wood). The reason I am posting is to encourage you to look at the positives of your diagnosis - you had clear margins and clear lymph nodes. Hopefully your treatment will deal with the LVI - have you been told if you need chemo or rads? I know I felt like it was hopeless at the beginning but it is now six years since my diagnosis and treatment and can't believe how the years have passed. Once you have been given your treatment plan you will feel more in control. I wish you well in your journey and hope you get the support you need. The forum is the best place to come for advice and support at any time of day when you need it. I used it during my treatment and pop in occasionally. If you have any questions just ask.
Welcome to the forum where I'm sure you'll find lots of support from fellow members. While you are waiting for some replies I've attached a link to another thread about LVI which I thought might be helpful:
It might also help to talk things over with one of our Helpliners. They will be open again on Monday (9-5 on weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays). The number is 0808 800 6000
Very best wishes
