I thought I would start with a bit of back history on my Mom's case for you.
2010 would mark 15 years since Mom's initial diagnosis of breast cancer.2010 also marks her third reoccurence.
Dr. Graham oversaw her chemotherapy.
Dr. Furness performed reconstructive surgery.
Mom's brain surgery was performed by Dr. Steinke in Edmonton at the Royal Alexandra Hospital. It was definitely a rough ride. Mom had the initial surgery which removed the tumour which was thankfully benign, then an infection deveopped in her skull plate, so was sent back in and had a piece of her skull removed. For the next little while Mom was without a portion of her skull and made a protective piece with a portion of ice cream bucket. Once her infection cleared up she went back for more surgery to put in a titanium plate - because she wasn't hard headed enough ;).
1999 second occurence, was put on Tamoxifen for Five years.
