Re: RE: does this mean it has gone

Hi Yvonne - I think the best you can hope for is being told that there is no evidence of disease. They never say you are cured. I am about to start Rads - I've done the chemo, mx and axillary clearance.

RE: does this mean it has gone

Hi

have had lumpectomy , chemo, and lymph node clearance and I am currently undergoing RT,and being prescribed tamoxifen .

After last of second clearance I was told the results were clear ,whereas the first test showed signs of cancer ( in 3 out of 5 nodes).

So, after all of that am I clear and just being monitored to see if IT returns? Am I thinking too deeply here?

Sometimes the doctors dont give you enough re-assurance.who knows anyhow.

love

yvonne
