I had ILC, 3.5 cm tumor, did six months of chemo to shrink it, then had a double mastectomy with reconstruction. I was on Adriamyacin and Cytoxin, which ate about 1 cm of my tumor after each infusion, then finished off the remainder of the tumor with a combination of Taxotere (allergy) and Taxol. By the time I had surgery, the cancer tumor was a pile of dead cancer cells, however, pathology found a separate quadrant of my breast full of LCIS. Boy am I glad I chose that double mastectomy.

Yes, it was considered extreme by some, but he said that at my age and meno. status it was almost certain that I'd be looking at more BC 5 years down the line. My prophy right had areas of LCIS and ADH, so it was good decision for me. The bilateral, along with the small tumor size, also bought me out of the chemo and drugs.

The pathology showed dirty margins and LCIS, so my surgeon recommended left breast mastectomy. I decided to have a proph. right mast as well, and my surgeon agreed completely. I knew I couldn't continue to worry about what might be in the right breast (the tumor didn't appear on my mamograms). The right breast and nodes were clear but I don't regret the decision.
