Some questions. If one or both of you have had a lumpectomy or a partial mastectomy, I have not heard any mention of radiation which is standard care for breast conservation. Did I understand the surgery correctly?
Are y'all talking about the OncotypeDX test sent off to determine ER,PR, Her2 positive or negative and the percentage of recurrence and the benefit of chemo? I may be wrong and one of the girls who has done this will clarify it, but if you have lymph node involvement I think chemo is standard. I hope some of the women who post regularly that have had this scenerio in their treatment will jump in. The process is slow when waiting but I would call the doctor with any questions to clarify what options are ahead . My chemo was to be after the radiation but my DX test showed no benefit worth the risks. Good luck and take care. Jo :-D
