I am 61. Same here Er+ PR+ Her 2 -.
I had one biopsy and it made the area so much worse, dimpled and it hurt like heck.
I refused any more invasive treatments. I feel great and have no symptoms.
I chose to go on Anastrozole and wait to see if I am mentally prepared for breast and lymph node removal. The anastrozole may help to shrink the Cancer? May help me live 5 years?
My oncologist is very mad at me as this not STANDARD TREATMENT.
I had to complain to the ethics committee before she agreed to give me anastrozole.
Their plan: Chemo, off with my left breast and nipple, remove many lymph nodes (also in the muscle) and radiation then anastrozole.
I just can not get with the program.
She does not no anything about what to do with me now.
I am going to try another Oncologist who just may support my decision.
Has anyone here used Anastrozole as a first treatment?
