TC vs. CMF
I had a lumpectomy a month ago. The tumor was smallish with micrometastatic carcinoma in one lymph node. The doctors initially thought that I would need radiation but not chemo, but after getting my oncotype (28), the medical oncologist is strongly recommending chemo, too. She's given me two choices: AT (4 doses, each 3 weeks apart) and CMF (8 doses, each 3 weeks apart). I'm struggling to balance the benefit of getting this over with as quickly as possible and feeling less awful even if it will take twice as long. I'm curious whether anyone else has dealt with a similar decision -- or if you can share any experience with either of these regimes. (I'm 64.) Thank you.
