Should I know Myriad scores pre-surgery? ER/PR % concerns
Newbie here just trying to navigate this new normal and all the information.
I'm scheduled for a lumpectomy May 1st. My surgeons office took blood for a BRCA test (Myriad) three weeks ago, but I just learned because of a nurse error, they haven't run the test yet. (My doctors office isn't being very cooperative correcting the error). Myraid told me it will take at least a week to get results after the test is run which bumps up dangerously close to my surgery date.
Wouldn't it be best to have these results to determine if a mastectomy would be a better choice than a lumpectory? (I'm wondering how much to bother the surgeons office. Don't want to alienate them.)
I'm also wondering about my ER/PR percentages which are 98%/90% respectively. Does this high percentage have any bearing on anything? (For example chemo needed of definite need for AI?)
Thank you so much for being here!
