Would love to hear your stories!  Especially, if you were young at diagnosis. 

Thanks for being an inspiration!  :)

my mom had ILC--lumpectomy, radiation, and tamoxifen and is now a survivor of over 22 years without a recurrence. She's still doing well, even though she's had colon cancer twice since.  I have LCIS, had lumpectomy and just finished my 5 years of tamox and am doing well

Hi

I wonder how many survivors out there that didn't do rads or hormone therapy. I really need to know I am at that crossroad of making a decision. I didn't need chemo but after reading all the long term se's of both rads and hormone therapy I'm not wanting to take a chance of loosing my QUALITY of life. I am 65 and had less than 1mm of idc. My BS said it is my choice and i don"t HAVE to do either and reaccurence is 20% with nothing but I did the the cancermath calculator and without therapys it is 9.1% and with is 8.9% It seems hardly woth the chance with those #'s.I see one on here with no therapy are there more. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Lumpectomy, chemo, rads, 5 years of Arimidex.......10 years out in February. No long term SEs from any of the treatments. In fact I am healthier than ever, and have a better quality of life than ever, because I modified my lifestyle (a little), started exercising (a lot) and started to take more chances (try out activities that had always been on my 'bucket list', travel more, take more time for myself, have more fun etc.). Grama, with the anti-hormonals, any time at all on them will reduce your recurrence risk, and if you find them problematical, you can always just quit. I would, for sure, give them a shot. I didn't have any trouble with rads either, and I wanted to do everything I could the first time around to minimize the chance of EVER having to deal with it again (65 is young nowadays!). Best of luck with your decisions.
