I don't have any advice on chemo, but boy, your story about timing of recurrences sounds so much like my own. Originally lobular carcinoma in situ found in 1990/1991 (no treatment at that time -- only watchful waiting); diagnosed with invasive lobular in 2003; little blip with a weird single site metastasis in 2006; all well until this May (2019). I only did chemo on 2003 ILC diagnosis, and it was TAC. With 2006, I went on letrozole and it held everything at bay until 2019. Currently on Ibrance/faslodex.
From reading many of the threads on BCO, I'm seeing that most people at this point would be put on an AI, so my gut tells me that the radiation combined with an AI would probably be where most docs would end up? Just offering a perspective here.
