No cancer in the lymph nodes!!! After bone scan, no cancer there either!!!! No need for chemo!! Dr. recommended Tamoxifen but I declined after research told me that it would improve my chances of non-recurrance by only 21/2 percent. Right now I am waiting for swelling to go down so I can move on to a prothesis and have my clothes fit again :-) I realize how fortunate I am and thank all of you for your wisdom and support! God bless you!!

    I'm so happy you don't have to do chemo! Keep up the great attitude. Isn't it nice to get some sunshiney news on a Feb winter day! Cheers to you!

    That is really good news, I am happy for you. It is good that you stayed away from the Tamoxifen also, that is one that can cause other tumors to show up. Best wishes for continued success.
