congratulations wallycat!

Can you tell us what they do to monitor you? I'm newly diagnosed and having surgery this week. I'm so convinced ILC always metastasizes because I don't know how they monitor the situation since it doesn't show well on imaging. My doctor says PET scans are for people with stage 3 or 4.

Routine mammogram found ILC and breast MRI found a second location very close to the first. Age 50 at diagnosis. ILC is multifocal with extensive LCIS.
