Re: Lymphovascular invasion.

Hi Monica

 

Sure others will be a long soon but if helpful, we could put you in touch with one of our Someone Like Me volunteers over the phone or maybe via email? We could perhaps find a volunteer that had a similar diagnosis to you that might be able to offer some reassurance. Please email someone.likeme@breastcancercare.org.uk if that would be helpful?

 

Best wishes

Re: Lymphovascular invasion.

Thanks Sarah,don't think I will check any more as it just heightens anxiety and I am bad enough as it is. Starting chemo tomorrow. Not looking forward to side effects but will be glad to get started. Great hearing you are 3.5 years on from where I am. Take care and thanks for the info. x

Re: Lymphovascular invasion.

i am 3 and a 1/2 years down the line now,but like you i was grade 3 no nodes but did have the lvi..i also wasnt told about this,i only found out as my oncoligist changed my hormone tablet and wrote to my docs telling them i  was esent a copy of the letter and it said my grade,stage then i read lvi..I rang my breast nurse to ask why it was mentioned she said oh they dont really mention that but you have had all the treatment to kill off any stay cells(if you had any) i had a panic for a while only as read things on the net.but like the breast nurse said any stray cells if any hopefully have been killed off.x

Re: Lymphovascular invasion.

Ali23 try not to be come consumed with the information listen to what the medical team are saying.  My breast surgeon said that most tumours had access to blood supply.  The fact you have no lymph node involvement is good.  I had lymph node involvement and yes I focused like you on that which only added to my distress.  I was diagnosed last year and now nearing the end of my treatment - possibly end of August.  I am looking forward to that but at the same time feeling anxious about it as having my three weekly treatment makes me feel secure.  Also I have met some very special people who are long term patients who have inspired me in terms of what good treatments are out there for breast cancer.  Good luck and try to focus on what is positive in your treatment plan.

Lymphovascular invasion.

I have recently been diagnosed with IDC, grade 3. I had two tumours - one was 23mm and the other 8mm. No lymph node involvement. However, I was LVI positive. Wasn't told at consultation. I only found this out when completing breast cancer care book when I phoned the BN. Have seen the Oncologist who told me not to worry about this! Have checked a couple of sites and I am now really scared.

Can I just say I have just joined this forum today as I don't know where to turn to. Can't believe the amount of crying I am doing.
