NO : Lots of information missing , the results of the tests. If I have to guess had initial lumpectomy , later mastectomy was done most likely due to recurrence , ovaries removed to control skeletal metastasis, if it is true it is usual correct pathway to control aggressive tumor in 53 yr old , not true provide additional info, speak to oncologist , good luck if all neg , seek ii nd opinion.
