Got my call back from the Tumor Board.
1) No further surgery recommended.
A. For the breasts the surgery will not necessarily remove the IDCS cells and these will be tackled by radiation.
B. For the lymphnodes, the likelihood that the micrometastasis are elsewhere is so small that the SE from a total node removal are not worth it. Again radiation should take care of them.
2. Hormone therapy suggested Tamoxifen vs the menopause inducing drugs+heavier hormone therapy.
I am very relieved with these news BUT cannot help but wonder if we are not being "soft". Am discussing all with my Gyno later today to get another opinion.
Thank you for any suggestions you have.
