Just diagnosed w/Invasive Ductal Cancer - Stage I, Tumor Stage T1C. Have had lumpectomy and most recent my lymph nodes were removed. (Lymph nodes were negative and no mestastis elsewhere in my body.) My recommended treatment is 6-1/2 weeks radiation, 6 months chemo (CMF) and 5 yrs of Arimidex.
Is there anyone out there with a similar breast cancer condition who has undergone a this same type of treatment? I would very much like to know your views. Mainly, do you really think it was worth going through the chemotherapy?
Additionally, is there anyone who might have had a similar type of breast cancer that chose an 'alternative type of therapy" and if so what, and what kind of results have you achieved?
Desparate for information.
I really don't know if it
