Hi everyone, I am trying to decide if I should go for chemo or not. I scored a 24 on the oncotype test. My chance of recurrence is 15% with tamoxifen, but if I do chemo and tamoxifen, it will drop down to 7.5%. Truth to be told, I am scare of chemo. All the short term and long term side effects scare me!! So I would like to get your opinion. I am leaning toward to get chemotherapy, but would still like to hear your experience with chemo or skipping chemo treatment. Thank you in advance.
