Re: Recurrence in Chest Wall 1 year after Mastectomy

Hello I'm 49 I had mastectomy 9 years ago. No chemo no radio was on zoladex injections for 2years and tamoxafin for 5 years. I have just been diagnosed with local reoccurrance..i found a hard lump along my mastectomy scar. Its estrogen positive like before and have started anastrazole which is similar to tamoxafin only for post menopause. I've had a ct scan which was clear and I'm waiting for bone scan results. I should be having lumpectomy and implant removed on 30th July but my bone scan has still not been looked at.im hoping to know more this Thursday. My mind is working overtime because until I know the exact plan and diagnosis I can't relax. The waiting is awful as you know. I hope you've had your scans and results are ok so they can get your treatment plan sorted. Take comfort that you are not alone.xx

Re: Recurrence in Chest Wall 1 year after Mastectomy

Hello, CT scan and bone scan were all clear so it looks like a local reccurance- the plan is operation on tuesday (lumpectomy of the chest wall) then most probably radiotherapy starting sometime in september.They will put a final treatment plan together once the pathology report comes back after operation. Thank you both for your messages 💗 xxxx

Hi Ladies
That really tough to have a recurrence in the same boob.
Hope you're doing well Unicorngirl. Good to see you again.
Rhi32 - Have you had any results back yet from your scans and have now been given your treatment plan?
Lotsa love, Dellywelly xxx

Re: Recurrence in Chest Wall 1 year after Mastectomy

Hi Rhi32, it’s cometely soul destroying when it comes back. I am on my third recurrence since original diagnosis September 2016. I had a lumpectomy first. Then a mastectomy. Mine had never spread so each time a local recurrence. It’s very scary & your mind will go into overdrive. You will feel better & more in control once you have a plan. Maybe prepare yourself that they’ll want to give you chemo this time. I hope you get your results soon & can move on with your next lot of treatment. Deep breaths & don’t let it beat you down xx

Recurrence in Chest Wall 1 year after Mastectomy

Hello, I am 33 years old.I was first diagnosed with Breast Cancer in May 2017.I had a Mastectomy and was put on Tamoxifen for 10 years (no radiotherapy, no chemo) My oncotype score was 15.
A few months ago I noticed a firm/hard area just under the Mastectomy scar line. Saw my Consultant who decided to do a biopsy.Went back for results last Wednesday and it turns out to be Cancer yet again. Has anybody else experienced a recurrence in the chest wall? I’m currently waiting for a CT scan and bone scan before they decide on a treatment plan xx
