On May 19th 2017, I was diagnosed with stage 1or2 invasive lobular carcinoma. ER+ PR+ HER2-. On July 5, 2017, I had a mastectomy to remove my right breast. I had 5 tumors  (4.5, 0.2, 0.15, 0.1, 0.1 CM). My reoccurrance score rate was 23. Suggested treatment was 5 years of tamoxifen, no chemo, no radiation. I refused the tamoxifen due to the side effects. On November 27, 2017,  I had Deip Flap reconstruction surgery. 

August 2, 2021, I was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. There is a suspension of bone Mets. I am currently taking Ibrance 125mg on a 28 day cycle. 3 weeks on 1 week off and Letrozole 2.5mg daily. I've also hired a holistic doctor to assist with getting healthy and managing any side effects.
