I'd like to hear from women who have made the chemo / no chemo decision based on their Oncotype Dx scores. My score came back relatively low - 12 - but if feel that I should still go forward with chemo. If I don't go forward with chemo I feel I would always question whether I did the right thing. I can make it through the chemo .. and even if it helps reduce recurrence just a small percentage, I feel it's worth it. I'm supposed to let my doc know my decision in a couple of days. I'm stage 1B, micrometastis only in a single lymph node, and and pre-menopausal so I don't fit neatly into any of the completed studies for the oncotype results.
Thanks Judy. Did you have a difficult time with the chemo, and did you suffer any after effects ...(neuropathy, etc.the list is long!) You say you never regretted your decision, and wondering if you had any second thoughts at all. Thanks again for your kind advice.View Thread
