I am 49 y/o with invasive ductal ca,tumor was 1.1 cm, E+, P+, HER/neu negative, 2 sentinel nodes positive, 21 axillary nodes negative. I was told it was Stage IIAHad bilateral mastectomies (my choice), dose dense chem A/C x 4 and Taxol x 4.
Do I need radiation therapy?
My onc and the radiation onc feels so because of two things in my biopsy: No clean margins (it reads invasion of deep soft tissue amrgin up to 0.6 cm) and focal lymphatic involvement. Their feeling is that I have a 20% chance of local recurrence.
If XRT is needed what woulod be the toal dose and duration?
I also want to know if Arimidex can be given with XRT or it has to come afterwards.
Thanks you very much
