Hi, I had my lumpectomy and radiotherapy two and a half years ago and I still have a very lumpy sore breast and soreness around my ribcage and armpit. If I had known I would be left with these lumps I would've begged for a mastectomy. I've had two clear mammograms but I never fully trust them, as I'd had a clear mammogram just before I found my tumour. With these hard lumps you are always questioning whether they have changed shape or feel different. I did go back to the breast care centre last year as I was worried but was made to feel like I was wasting their time and being paranoid. I was given Exemastene to take but no one has ever checked my medication in two years. I hate taking it, it makes me feel nauseous and all my joints hurt. My gp said he didn't know the drug and couldn't help. I feel as if you are completely left on your own. Sorry I sound such a misery. I've not talked about this to anyone since my treatment.
