Opting out of Adjunt Therapy for Stage 1 Breast Cancer
I Was diagnosed with bc in September last year at a regular mammogram. I received a lumpectomy in my left breast and radiation treatment. I am now almost 63 years old. I have tried both Femara and Tamoxifen with very bad side effects. Enough to sideline me and make my life miserable. I am currently not taking anything and feeling great. I just wish I had more information regarding my decision. There was a study that a friend gave me who lives in Europe that says that taking the medicine will only add 53 days to my life after 23 years. It was a statistical average. I would REALLY love to hear what you all think. How many people with this type of cancer at this age have a recurrence is another question I have. I am scared and would love the help.
