My mum (55 yrs) has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and has gone through mastectomy of left breast with 11 lymph nodes removed, out of which 10 are cancerous. 1 apical node extracted during the operation was clear.
I wanted to know if any of the friends or well wishers here experienced the similar prognosis and gone through above regimen. If so, what's the outcome?
According to our current oncologist, PET test is still required as she is only going through the 1st Chemo. In your experience, are we on the right track i.e. shall we do PET test after 4 chemo cycle?
Also, we hope to consult with a medical oncologist for regular check up and wanted to know if there is any specific oncologist/clinic in Kolkata you would recommend. When TMC is on the card, we are a bit stretched in terms of time so assuming private clinic/oncologist will be quicker in terms of test results & prognosis. We intend to travel to from Bangladesh.
