I called the drs office and theyd already gone. Im going to call back tomorrow and ask plus i see her on Monday. I want it done right and hopefully rushing them wont cause them to screw it up again. I have been so stressed and depressed waiting for this i haven't been able to do anything but sit and sleep. The first time I saw the oncologist i thought the test had already been sent off and I was getting results. It hasnt been..so she sent it that day. If its 2 more weeks it'll be 6 wks I've been waiting on this!

Not Broken, Did your doctor explain why BCI and oncotype showed different numbers for the first 5 years? I never had the onco done, as my MO said I was young (44), grade 3, 4 cm of disease. She felt I needed chemo. Now I’m trying to decide if ovarian suppressIon is best or tamoxifen alone. She said oncotype is not designed for that purpose, but if I wanted it then we could look at it. Perhaps I should be asking about BCI instead? Can you fill me in on how your MO is using BCI to advise you

PebblesV your thinking aligns with mine. I was 65 when diagnosed, 2.6cm lumpectomy on 3/20. Clean margins. 2 of 2 nodes involved. Oncotype of 9.

Disinclined to have a 2nd surgery to discover whether there are more cancerous lymph nodes. Leaning towards no chemo— thinking rads and Arimidex only. Lymphedema scares me more than cancer, too! I look at everything thru a quality of life lens. (Learned to do this as husband has had Stage 4 prostate cancer completely managed by hormone therapy for over 5 years). First meeting with radiologist this Thursday.

Sitting with this for a bit that’s my thinking today

Well wishes to all.

Haliday sending you well wishes as you figure out your path. I’m about 8 months out from when this all began and feeling very much like myself, dare I say stronger and healthier today vs 8 months ago. So I have no regrets on the decisions I made to fight this. I did the lumpectomy, radiation and am on tamoxifen now. No axillary node dissection and no chemo thanks to my oncotype results. Lost 30 lbs which was for my own nutrition / health, I believe diet and lifestyle can be additive too.

Best of luck finding the path for you that feels right

I am 39 years old and diagnosed with breast cancer in January. I had a double mastectomy in March and lymph nodes were negative. Just received my oncotype score off 22. Doctors are recommending chemo. I go in tomorrow for my chemo educational.
