Is there any chance that they may have missed the original spot - either it's in a difficult to see location or potentially the calcium deposits were too faint to pick up previously? That happened to me - the original treatment center missed a spot that is hard to get to on my small breasts. I have seen some research articles that seem to point to these quick recurrences as having already been present in the breast tissue to some degree.
I'm with you - researching bilateral MX for when the time comes, I'm starting to think that will be my best option given my physique. Can't wait to get my next screens done in December to see if the tamoxifen is helping! In my mind, it's not IF I'll get the surgery, it's WHEN.
