Re: what next?

Thank you for all your advise, I only had an MRI of both breasts before surgery, no scans nor x rays? 

Wishing you well as you progress through chemo.

Re: what next?

As for the scan, didn't you had scans before surgery? I had breast mri, bone scan and CT of liver lungs kindey uterus ovaries etc and brain- if you didn't maybe you have to do it before starting chemo

Re: what next?

I was full of anxiety before the results but the moment I knew what I was dealing with I calmed down. With your onc you are going to have your plan set. Probably chemo first and then radiotherapy and hormone tablets maybe
I had also invasive lobular bc 1,5 cm and 7 out of 17 nodes positive- had a mastectomy too and node clearance and now I m in weekly dose of taxol for 12 weeks - tomorrow I m having #3- wishes for the best and bellasmum was right - write all your questions before the appointment

Re: what next?

The Oncologists are brilliant as I have had another unrelated cancer before. They explained all the treatments and options. Your will be looked after by the team and they have a Nurse Specialist who will also help. They may do a scan to know what they are dealing with and the best course of action. I would advise that you write down any questions you have before your appointment as you won't remember them on the day.

 

Hope all goes well for you. Xx

what next?

Hello,

I have reciently had a mastectomy for invasive lobular breast cancer, unfortunately the results show it is in my removed lymph nodes,  the surgeon said I would see an oncologist within two weeks re chemo, radiotherapy and hormone treatment but I just wondered what atually happens at the appointment.  I have had pain in my back, but mainly my left thigh for some time do you think they will do an x ray or scan ?  Needless to say I am worried...
