I had a lumpectomy in May, 2017, followed by two re-excisions on June 22 and August 3. Margins were finally clear after 2nd re-excision. Just finished 21 radiations 2 weeks ago and the Oncologist prescribed Arimidex. I have decided not to take it after reading all the unfavorable side effects that women have experienced. I am 70 years old and my BC type is !DC, clean lymph nodes, Epos, Ppos, Her2positive, with my oncotype being 9. I would love to hear from other women who have opted out of a hormonal therapy. I do plan to eliminated sugar from my diet, as well as many carbs, and lose weight.
