Long story short, right breast multi-typal (DCIS, LCIS, IDC, ILC, ICC) stage IIB, 5 cm tumor, SLN 3 mm tumor, E+, BMX in 2009 (left prophylactic), chemo, clear ALND, refused radiation, aromatase inhibitors for a bit over 4 years.
Celebrated 10 years cancerversary this past October.
Had shoulder pains since July, getting worse and worse - opposite side not the one with cancer. Finally got to the doctor in October - couldn't do it earlier as I had to have both eyes operated for cataracts.
BS ordered bone scan - clear. Multiple XRays, diagnostic frozen shoulder. Got steroid shot in shoulder, started physical therapy, started moving shoulder. Saturday I finally was able to pull my shoulder back and out popped a swollen area where the infraclavicular nodes are. Didn't notice before because shoulder was abducted.It's about 1 1/2" diameter, not really soft but not really hard, fixed, it hurts only if I press on it.
Called my BS this morning, got back to me in the afternoon, he's getting me in to see him tomorrow morning (was in surgery all day couldn't get me in today).
Are there ladies out there who got recurrence in infra or supraclavicular nodes?
The pathology at the BMX showed the left breast very large area of atypical hyperplasia. In my BS's words, "it was getting ready to turn nasty too".
I'm freaking out.
