Does anybody know people, or are you someone who has survived ILC long term, (more than 5  to 10 years) without a recurrence?  Please post!

I was diagnosed in 2004, and think I am fine, but, as I see from the boards, you can never be 100% sure.

Thanks!

Fourteen years since I found the "thickening" in what used to be my left breast. At 75, many other things are falling apart but BC isn't one of my problems.

Hi everyone,

I will mark 12 years since diagnosis when this summer rolls around. Wow. I couldn't have imagined being at this point back then, since I was devastated by the diagnosis and year or so of treatments. I didn't even want to hear from my onc back then about my prognosis for survival. But here we are. The years since 2008 have had SO many peak moments. I miss my onc appointment last year, then decided that I should see him. I had to ask my husband what the doctor's name was-I had actually forgotten, and it wasn't just chemo brain!! I did see him and we had a nice chat. I hope we all live long and well.

Thanks MikaMika! I had a bmx, followed by 4 rounds of chemo: taxotere and cytoxan. Then I had 2.5 years of Tamoxifen before I threw in the towel because of side effects. I had reconstruction with implants a year after bmx. So far so good.

It has been 10 years since I saw in the bathroom mirror my poor flattened and misshapen left breast and next month will mark the 10thanniversary of the official diagnosis. I’m fine, as far as I know, but still keeping my fingers crossed.

Hello!

I'm 7 years out and am feeling great. In the early years, I used to spend a lot of time on this site and most of it was wasted by worrying about one thing or another, but now I rarely venture here. Nowadays I worry more about Covid than cancer. What a year, huh? It's so inspiring to hear from the long term ILC survivors! I'm enjoying my life as much as I can and hoping for many more cancer-free years to come!
