      Allison, I'm waiting for my onco score, and I am wondering what you decided to do?

    ONCATYPEDX test saved me from having to go through 20 weeks of chemotherapy! I still had to give up both of my breasts and ovaries, and I still have to take some narly follow up meds, but I don't have to kill my blood or lose my hair. I feel it gave me back 10 months of my life. My prayer is that yours will turn out the same. Please keep us posted. If you ever need to talk, please write me. musicmakerstudio@aol.com Will not let you go through this alone. : )

    My brother-in-law was diagnosed with breast cancer at Christmas time last year. His oncoDX came back a "1". His oncologist had never seen a 1 in his years of practice. So they high-fived each other and he will just do a few follow-up appointments. Here is wishing you a very low score! Take care, Sharon

    I know how hard waiting can be. I scored just one point above not recommended and my doc didn't recommend chemo. . I suggest if your results are in the gray area get a 2nd opinion from another oncologist.

    Wishing you a good report. As mentioned before, what ever it is your team will figure you a good plan. Good luck.

    I had never heard of an oncotype until I had my second breast cancer last year. Mine was very high, and chemo was necessary. On the other hand, a friend who is having radiation right now had a lower oncotype and does not need chemo. I'm not worried. I had the recommended treatment, I've had a bilateral mastectomy and have had my ovaries removed, and I'm on post-cancer medication (Aromasin) to prevent any remaining hormones (I can't imagine there are any!) from "binding" to any little buggers who may have survived chemo. Try not to jump to conclusions. Your doctors will make the best decision for you whatever your oncotype. Best of luck to you!
