I believe you addressed my question during the chat but you didn’t mention raloxifene which was the basis of my question.

Hi @tommie57, the part of your question specific to raloxifene is best answered by an oncologist.
You also mentioned nutrition to reduce the risk of recurrence. You may be interested in this discussion in the Cancer group.

I am a 53 year old female with large dense breasts. I had a partial masectomy on Jan. 17, 2018 to remove a 2 cm x 5 cm ductal carcinoma. It was determined to be stage 2a, grade 3, estrogen positive, progesterone positive, Her2 negative. Lymph nodes we’re negative. Still waiting on the ONCO results.
I requested a total masectomy due to my dense breast tissue but the surgeon refused. I see the Oncologist on Tuesday and Radiologist on Thursday of this first week in February.
Do you have any recommendations before I have my appointments this week?
Thank you!
