Inflametry Breast Cancer IBC

I was dignaoised with IBC her 2postive in October 2015 I have chemo single mastcomcy lymph nodes clearances and 30 session of radiotherapy and a year of herceptin

I had a review with oncologist last week and mri was clear he there is a high possibility of it returning in the future just to be aware of anything that comes and doesn't go away

I am.just wondering if any one on this site has IBC her2+

Also met with plastic surgeon and he doesn't know if resconstruction using tummy tissue will work as my skin has changed from the radiotherapy I am to have a special cat scan to see if the mirco vessels are not damaged

Did anyone on this site have skin damage from radiotherapy and still was able to have reconstruction surgery

Hello, I was diagnosed in August 2015, grade 3 with 27 nodes all cancer, i was also her+ and had chemo, radio and Year of herceptin and now on tamoxifen. Although I wanted a mastectomy, surgeon said lumpectomy would be enough. I am still in a lot of pain with the radio damage to my breast so I understand them saying about damage to your skin etc. I still feel tired by the end of a day and a few side effects etc. I'm sure they will advise what's best for you regarding reconstruction, and maybe just need longer to heal. Xx
