I’m going on 10 years and almost 9 years of Anastrazole. I had all nodes removed, 9 were cancerous, didn’t have a clear margin and the surgeon had to go back in for a second entry. My ONC still sees me about every 6 to 7 months since she considers me high risk, I have a mammo once a year. Had MRIs for I don’t know how long. Chemo was terrible for me and I was also part of a study but no one knew if it was the study drug and I ended up hospitalized after the 4th round, waited 2 months and then finished with a light chemo for the final 2. I thought rads were so easy after chemo but after 7 years I developed radiation induced pulmonary fibrosis and a year ago Radiation induced brachial plexus. The RIPF is well under control but the RIBP has taken me an entire year and I’ve now got back the use of my arm and hand. The hand will always be a little problem but that’s okay, I can write, stir, make a fist, wave, what more do I need? Stage III isn’t so bad after all!

Fitz33: Your story is so close to mine! Although I was not in a "study" group, chemo eventually took everything out of me and I ended up in the hospital for a week with a nasty infection. It delayed the last 3 treatments of Taxol (which was fine w/me). I also had a nodule on my right lung from radiation that the docs wanted me scanned for about 3 years and then took a biopsy to be sure it was stable.

PS: Everyone please take precautions during this corona virus outbreak! We survived BC and we can get through anything!
