What treatment Offered

I have been diagnosed with a local recurrence of triple positive cancer following treatment of the primary tumour with lumpectomy, chemo, radiotherapy and a year of herceptin. I am  also on anastrazole for 10 years. Sadly the recurrence occurred in the month prior to completion of herceptin. 

I have had a mastectomy and am now awaiting an appointment with the oncologist in a couple of weeks time, and wondered if anyone has been through a similar situation and could let me know what treatment was offered. Obviously it varies according to individual pathology but it's nice to attend appointments with some small knowledge in order to ask relevant questions.

Wishing every one all the very best with treatments and sending hugs to all.

  • Hi  

    I can't help with possible questions to ask as I haven't been in the same position as you. However, I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet so responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list where it'll be easier to see.

    You might find this information from Macmillan helpful on 'questions to ask your healthcare team'.

    While you're waiting for replies, it would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment to date into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
