Any local recurrence (within few yrs) early stage despite AI?
I am curious whether there are many local recurrences of early stage BC even though a person has followed all treatment recommendations (lumpectomy or mastectomy, and endocrine therapy (aromatase inhibitor, etc).
I opted not to do the AI as was told that rad therapy was most important and AI would only add 3% protection, in addition to my low oncotype score (10). So I wonder whether others have been hit with a local recurrence despite having taken the AI. I worried about the side effects and already was (am) marginal osteoporosis and thought I could escape a recurrence. Now will have to have mastectomy and will attempt the AI.
