(pCr) after neoadjuvant chemo, still worried about recurrence.
Diagnosed with Her2+, ER/PR Negative, Ki-67 90%, Stage 2B IDC, 2 positive nodes worried that even with pCr some people still have recurrence. Are any others in this same situation? I understand that the high Ki-67 is a double edge sword… it should respond well to Herceptin and Perjeta (which it did) but if there are any remaining cancer cells left after my last adjuvant Phesgo shot (Aug 22) it seems like it could come roaring back. My onc. Tells me the milestone to make is 3 years after the end of radiation treatment. Which I've never seen specified anywhere else. I thought recurrence or DFS was defined as after end of adjuvant chemo or some say after surgery
