Most people who are ER positive are also PR positive. The estrogen is the most important part, they don't really know how the PR (or lack thereof) plays into things.

If I'm understanding my report correctly, I'm here too.

I've only had the core biopsy done right now. Do they normally retest the tumor after surgery? And does the OncotypeDX test give more nuanced info about this too or is that something else?
