|3/17/2010||Dear Lillie,What a comfort you are! Any specific recommendation from Hopkins regarding Baby Aspirin? Are there any studies to follow or enter? I'm 2 years out. 3.8cm tumor. ER+, PR+ & Her2Nu+. Had double masc, dose dense AC +T, radiation, 1 yr of herceptin. Ovaries are out. Now I'm on Femara. Reconstructed. Yish! Could a simple baby aspirin help prevent recurrence? Any risks? Thank you very much.(ps. can't seem to "search" your database anymore... it's helpful to search specific words. sorry if you are repeating this advice.)|
