Brief Answer: Please refer below Detailed Answer: Thanks for your query. This seems to be a very aggressive and unusual case. There may be a possibility that complete surgical clearance was not done initially. I will need more details to answer, specifically the baseline clinical stage, metastatic workup, the exact histopathology report with ER, PR, HER2, and the current clinical status and any imaging.
