Hi I am 42 and just been diagnosed with breast cancer in my left breast. I had breast surgery - wide local excision and sentinel lymph node biopsy on May the 1st. I am extremely lucky to have kept my breast and just have the cancer removed an no trace on any cancer in my lymph nodes. I saw the oncologists today and left there so confused. I was offered to have chemotherapy for 4 months and take tamoxifen for 5 years or another option is to have goserelin (zoladex) injections around my belly button every month for 2 years and also take tamoxifen for 5 years, and radiation for 6 weeks.
So confused with what to do
any help would be appreciated x
Hope you found some info about the various drugs treatments on offer and came to a decision.
These really are difficult choices to make, considering the stakes.
Hope your post surgery journey is going well and whichever treatment plan you are on, you are coping with it.
