Recurrence after nearly 6 years
Just processing this new diagnosis. Five and a half years out from mastectomy, Had Stage I lobular as well as a small ductal tumor in right breast. Lump in armpit, took me seemingly ages to get a biopsy, which I had yesterday. Lobular cancer again. On some level I knew it wasn't the "scar tissue" people kept telling me it likely was. Letrozole for 5 years, until earlier this year.
I have an appointment with the surgeon (same one as last time) in a week. Pretty devastated but also just kind of numb. At the same time, my husband was recently diagnosed with early Parkinson's, and I want to be able to be here for him, as he does and will need help.
