mastectomy or not - have posted before

My wifes surgeon says Femara has shrunk her breast cancer (right breast and lymph nodes) almost to nothing, and the swollen nodes under her arm are reduced by 3/4 in size. Scans show this. Nothing else has shown up in her body enywhere. He still advises mastectomy and lymph node removal surgery but she is 74 and doesn't want to proceed. If she continue Femara and has six monthly checks (has been on it for 6 months since diagnosis) and doesn't have the mastectomy what are the chances of it remaining as is - no symptoms. Surgeon says who knows? Might live for 10 years, or it might flare
