- Question from Patty: I am not on any of the medications you are talking about as I am triple-negative. Are there any other meds for us coming out in the near future? I have chemo-induced menopause. I was diagnosed in Dec 03, I am almost 4 years out and doing great.
- Answers - Patricia A. Ganz, M.D. In general, we do not add additional therapy to someone who is free this many years out after their treatment. This could obviously change, but it sounds like you have had therapy and I'm assuming you have had regular follow-up. It's now almost 4 years and you've not had a recurrence, so we would be very optimistic about your future.
- Lillie Shockney, R.N., B.S., M.A.S. We're glad you're doing great!
