This is really useful. Yes I will speak to them. I am not that worried just interested. Sounds like everyone is different so who knows.
Your reply interested me I had mx but no rads. I think there has been a study about when rads should be offered after mx.
I didn't have chemo as nothing was found in the lymph glands (or in the lymph and blood vessels in the tumour itself)
I hope all goes well for you from now on
i had local recurrence last year after 4 years. I was on Arimidex. Had it removed and rads. But I didn't get radiotherapy after first mascectomy and they think that why it returned had been a cell left. I had my treatment in Thialand and only had Chemo no rads.
The peak for recurrences is still within the first two or three years.
Sorry for my ignorance but what did he mean it had not altered?
At my second annual check up I asked the doctor if use of hormone treatments had altered the peak at which re occurence happens (i.e did it still peak in the first two or three years). The reply was that the peak had not altered.
I have moved your post to the Hormone Therapy board to give users more of a chance to respond and I am sure they will be along soon to share their experiences and offer a friendly ear.
In the meantime you may want to call our support line at 0808 800 6000 who will be able to talk to you about hormone therapy and offer some support.
On hormone therapy and told very uncommon to get a reoccurrence while on it but is this true?
