Hello Mr Deepak , I am on Letrozole 2.5 mg for the past 5 years. In 2015 diagnosed with IDC 2A , tumour size 2cm, 1 out of 15 lymph nodes positive . Underwent BCS , 4 AC 4 Paclitaxel, Radiation, since it was HER -veER PR +ve , Bilateral Oopherectomy. In last December during regular follow up Dr advised to continue Letrozole for another 5 years as per new recommendation. How did your wife end up with stage 4 ?Did you have regular follow up with your Dr? Hope in Almighty for good
