Mastectomy, Chemotherapy And Radiation Therapy?

Mastectomy, Chemotherapy And Radiation Therapy?

Hi everyone. I am starting to have doubts about having radiation therapy after my last TC chemotherapy treatment. I had a double mastectomy after a lumpectomy and the surgeon wasn't able to get clean margins. Between both surgeries I had 5/28 lymph nodes positive for cancer in my right arm pit. Has anyone else had mastectomy, chemotherapy and then radiation therapy? I'm wondering if the radiation therapy is worth it after having chemo.

When my dad had prostate cancer he had radioactive seeds put in, that is when the oncologist said not to have grandchildren sitting on his lap, but he was never told to stay away from anybody.

Hello,

Hello
History: I am ER/PR + and Her2-, and cancer was found in the lymph nodes, but the source of cancer was never found in the breast. I had 4 rounds of Doxorubici, 12 rounds of Taxol, right mastectomy/ALND October 25, and just finished 5 weeks of radiation.

QUESTION: my Onco is planning 10 years of Anastrozole which I expected and he wants to add 2 years of Verzenio and Zometa. I am sure he is covering all basis to prevent future cancer, but has anyone else gone through this regimen, have… read more

Nerve Pain From Lymph Removal

I had 7 lymph nodes removed during my mastectomy on 1/5. I have a good amount of nerve pain even on the meds. Has anyone found anything else that has helped them with this pain?
