Is there any hope for long term survival?
I am being treated for stage I invasive carcinoma. I am sorry but everything I read says that my survival can be prolonged but I will probably die from breast cancer and within the next 10 years. I supposedly have good prognostic factors such as hormone positive and the her neg. but honestly does not seem to matter. I dont want 5 or 10 years. I want to live to old age and see my beautiful family grow up. I feel I have been robbed. I am angry and disillusioned. Why have they not found a way to prevent this coming back. I am writing because I would like to hear whether there is any hope. Where are the percentages of women living 30 years after diagnosis? Is it really 1 percent? It sea like such fallacies. Treatment has really not improved. It is just catching the disease earlier and giving a few better years. I am angry and feeling hopeless . Why did this ever happen?
