Hi, I am 46 yrs old and was diagnosed with lobular breast cancer in my left breast in 2012. I had chemotherapy followed by a masectomyand lymph node clearance , radiotherapy then tamoxifen. I had delayed reconstruction in 2014 where a small local reoccurance was discivered which was removed when they reconstructed. My tamoxifen was changed to anastrazole with a zolidex injection to induce an early menopause. Unfortunately in oct 2015 i found an enlarged lymph node on my right side which was biopsied and showed ductal cancer and scans showed metastasis on my spine. Im back on oral chemo and injections for my bones and other than tiredness and some aching I am quite well. I would love to hear from anyone with similar problems. I have 3 children and my biggest fear is dying and leaving them. I have heard different things about prognosis ranging from 80% of people dying within 5 years and some people living for 10-15 years? Does anyone know more about this?
