My Oncotype was 32. I did do chemo.
If it looks like you need to do chemo, ask your MO about possibly adding ovarian suppression during chemo - it helps protect your ovaries, but also might help chemo to be more effective because the cancer is not being simultaneously fed by estrogen.
Best wishes to you. It's a hard situation at any age, but especially when we are supposed to be in our "prime."
Diagnosed at 32. Local recurrences one year later, probably due to needle seeding at inital biopsy. Now dealing with MBC.
