Hello. I wasx

Doctor's Assistant: Have you experienced any bleeding? Pain? Unintentional weight loss?

I was operated for breastcancer in march. Grade 3, 9 lymph nodes positive, Estrogen and progesterone positive. Do you know anything about long term survival? I am 32 years old. 2o mm tumor. Ki 76 was 50.

Doctor's Assistant: Are you keeping a personal medical record while dealing with this?

I do have my medical record. Just gone through 4 EC and 12 Taxol.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I was pregnant when I got the cancer. 80% Estrogen positive. 15 % progesterone positive. Her 2 negativ (fish). Clear PET. The tumor was located laterally close to the axilla. Scared of dying.

stage of your cancer?

If I only look at my numbers from the pathology report it would be stage 3A, but my oncologist says it is more like stage 2 because of the size of the tumor. I do not understand this because I had so many (9) positive lymph nodes.

Your survival rate is still well over 70 %.

What did your doctor tell you?

Customer reply replied 9 months ago
Is that for survival on long term .... like 15 years? Here in Norway the doctors do not tell, but they use a predictcalculator. But it seems like this calculator do not work in young breast cancer patients. For me it showed only 30 % chance for survival 10 years after surgery, radiation and tamoxifen.

We do a 5 years.

However 10 year is currently over 40% depending on many factors, and may well be over 70%.

You have to keep in mind that after 5 years with no relapse your survival actually goes up.

Survival rates improve daily.

OK, let me know if you have further questions.

Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale. [This must be done manually at the top of the page]. In fact, a 5 rating squares me with just answer and allows me to provide prompt and accurate service to you, but does not increase your cost. And, I will be here for any follow up
