    I had a bilat mastectomy in 2002 due to invasive cancer on L side, about 5 cm, hormone recept positive, extreme family history.


    Sentinel node biopsy showed micromets in both L nodes.  Don't think sentinel nodes were looked at on R side.


    Had chemo (adriamycin/cytoxan mix, 3 taxol - missed last taxol), 22 radiation (had to stop due to infection in implant), 5 yrs tamoximen, now femara.


    I know it's difficult, but please, I'm wondering about odds of recurrence.  Can you tell me something?Thank you.
