Customer Question
for Dr. Chip only,I haven't...
for Dr. Chip only,I haven't written in a while. I was feeling really hopeful because my breast cancer is so estrogen positive. Then I remembered that most mets are ER positive.I stain the highest positivity possible. It is ER 3 +++ (with 95% positive). I would think that most recurrences come with people who are ER2++ or ER+ only. ER 3+++ is supposed to be the most indolent. What do you think?

This is Dr. David

you should be hopeful because you have gone more than 3 years with your breast cancer not coming back

the more years you go, the lower your chances of your breast cancer coming back.

you have tolerated your AI therapy well and you continue to take your AI therapy

you don't have to stress about your breast cancer coming back.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
