AC-T versus T-C
My mom was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer with significant nodal involvement. She underwent a bilateral mastectomy and is gearing up to begin chemo. The doctor has strongly recommended AC-T. Before surgery, the doctor also mentioned T-C as an option but now with the discovery of extensive nodal involvement, she strongly suggests AC-T.
My mom is a bit concerned because she is older (65) and has hypertension. Her echo came back fine, but she is leaning towards T-C due to her worries about the cardio toxicity and side effects of AC-T. I would really appreciate it if I could share some experiences with her of people who were her age and went through AC-T, or who chose T-C and if so, why.
Thank you so much.
