Hi. I will be 72 in May. I am very fit, healthy, and active. Just had my second mastectomy. First cancer, 5 years ago, was lobular and I'm taking Anastrzole following the first mastectomy. I am told that all the cancer has been removed following the second mastectomy, that the sentinel nodes are clear, and that I don't need radiotherapy. However, I am now being offered chemotherapy if I want it.

I'm reading everything, of course, but feel at sea on this one. All opinions welcomed.
