Re: Tripple negative

Hi Christina im triple neg and had a CT scan. I think it was because my tumour was quite large 5cm and node involvement. I had right mastectomy last October then 6 fec-t chemo and have just had node clearance 24th April. X

Re: Tripple negative

I had health insurance & therefore had all my treatment at a private hospital.

 

My my tumor was 28mm idc with 105mm dcis.  I had surgery mx & ANC followed by Fec-t 100 no rads

 

i had the usual mammo & ultra sound, I also had ct & MRI.  A few weeks after surgery I had another CT scan

 

i finished Chem Dec 2013 recon surgery June 2014, reduction of the other breast to match Feb 2015

 

i have only received annual mammo of non affected breast, as recon side is an implant.

 

have to say it freaks me out a bit that the recon side is never checked other than the consultant checking it with his fingers - I mean how would he know if someone nasty was lurking under the implant?

Re: Tripple negative

Hi  I had same diagnosis and treatment as your sister I have not had any further test just scan on remaining breast when lump found but it was just a cyst think different authorities have different follow up my breast nurse said doing more scans just causes more waiting worries if that makes sense Christina

Tripple negative

Just wondering how it is defined if you need to have a ct scan or PET scan etc following a tripple negative diagnosi? Do they do this on the NHS of has anyone paid private? X
