Hello fellow Mucinous Breast Cancer sisters!
Today I reached my five year mark, I am very happy and thank God that so far, I am all good. I think less and less of having had breast cancer but it never completely goes away, it changes us. I wanted to share my story incase it would be helpful to others.
DX 9/23/16, 7mm Pure Mucinous , Stage 1, Grade 1, ER/PR 95% strong, HER-2 NEG, Nodes neg, K67 30%, Onco 32% (with inhibitor, 10yr recurrence 22%)
Lt. Lumpectomy , Radiation, Arimidex 2 years
My doctor felt Mucinous is different so was not that concerned over my Onco score, she also felt the Mitotic Rate of 1 was more reliable vs the K67%
I did have her run the RSCP (recurrence 6%) and the RSClin (recurrence 7%), just for interest, I know those numbers are based on 5 years of Arimidex.
The 3 Magee Equations average score was 13.22 compared to an Onco score of 32! I could only take two years of Arimidex, my quality of life was really suffering, my doctor did not have a problem of me going off of it. I walk almost every day 3 miles, keep my weight down and my stress level . I have yearly bilateral mammograms and ultrasounds along with bilateral ultrasounds every six months, mixed with breast exams. I hope my story has been helpful, we are all in this together.
