Invasive ductile breast cancer: What should I expect?

I have Stage 1a ICD, pr+hr+ Her2-. Grade 1; Ki67 1%. I had lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy. 7 nodes removed, no cancer in the nodes and tumor margins are clear. They refer to it as "favorable breast cancer". Go figure…LOL. Anyway, expect things to go fast now that you are in their system. I had surgery locally but will do radiation and follow-up at Mayo. With this early stage cancer and my age (74) i have the option of 3 day partial breast radiation so am doing that.

I guess after talking to a medical oncologist next week, I’ll also have all the asterisks that go with stage 1 breast cancer. Just noticed that you mentioned that at age 73 – I’ll be 72 in a week – there is a partial breast radiation. Will keep this in mind. No mention if you were put on hormone medication? Radiation, to me, seems once and done, hormone medication with all its potential side effects goes on for maybe 5 years.
