The benefit of composite is that while even the most solar-resistant wooden boards require regular staining and oiling, fully capped composite decking doesn’t any of that maintenance to keep the boards in good shape, structurally and aesthetically.
Study: No radiation after surgery ok for certain breast cancer patients. By Miriam Falco CNN Medical News Managing Editor. ... All of the women in the study had a lumpectomy and got the hormone-blocking drug. Only half the women also went on to have radiation therapy the other half did not. ...
Still, no study has shown that radiation or tamoxifen after lumpectomy for DCIS improves overall survival or reduces the rate of metastatic recurrence (cancer coming back in a part of the body away from the breast).
Lumpectomy completed, Chemo underway and I don't really want to add radiation complexities to the chemical bunfight. I too am a statistical and information driven person (non emotional) in making decisions.
Standard of care can be a mastectomy, a lumpectomy with radiation or only a lumpectomy. Some women also elect to take tamoxifen. Some women also elect to take tamoxifen. When I was diagnosed with DCIS in 2007, I chose to have a lumpectomy only for my DCIS, after consulting with Dr. Michael Lagios, a world renowned DCIS expert and pathologist ...

After a lumpectomy, also called a breast-sparing or breast-conserving operation, radiation usually is given to the breast to reduce the chance of the cancer returning.
