Mastectomy in Stage 4?
Hi, I've been metastatic for 2 years, have only had initial chemo and have been on herceptin and Perjeta for almost 2 years. My recent mammogram showed that my primary tumour has recurred and there are 2 new tumours near it. There are no visible mets as of 2 months ago. My oncologist wants me to have a mastectomy and to start tamoxifen. I have an appointment with a surgeon in a couple of weeks. Has anyone else here had a mastectomy in stage 4, and do you feel it has helped? I really don't want to go through this trauma if it is not going to extend my life.
