Hello, I have a very small tumor 2 cm below my mastectomy’s scar. At the time of the mastectomy there was no cancer found in the lymph nodes and I am not her2 positive It is a recurrence . I am having surgery next week to remove it. I had a pet scan and waiting for results. What are the chances that I will require no further treatment? I have been taking tamoxifen for four years and apparently that stopped working for me. I prior to that tried two different aromatase inhibitor‘s but the side effects were not desirable. I’m interested in what is the typical treatment in a situation like mine? Appreciate your feedback. Thank you, Janet

I have been taking letrozole for approximately six months. I now have severe pain down my right leg and it is only getting worse after five weeks. I have had X-rays, MRI's, nerve tests and no one has A diagnosis. For short term I was given pain medication that made my life more bearable but they won't give me any more due to it's addictive nature. I was taking oxicodone, Valium, and prednisone. This combination worked I was given injections in my arms and in my rear end. And the list of other drugs that I have tried which I won't describe here have done nothing for me. My pain is so unbearable I would rather die than go ahead like this. I am stopping the letrozole and I'm going to have a bone scan tomorrow. I hold out no hope .
