hi. Texting for my mom. She was just diagnosed with triple positive cancer. She had one positive node. Went to oncologist and the only further tested he prescribed was a lung xray.

I had her2+ 10 yrs ago with no node involvement and they scanned my whole body before chemo.

Have things changed that much. ? I am looking to cange doctors after he stated that taxotere didn't cause pen hair loss. That was just a bunc of greedy people. Really!


We live in northern Delaware. If anyone knows a good oncologist please PM.

I was diagnosed last October with triple positive and one node, I did not get any scans. My oncologist told me once I complete my Herceptin next February I will be scanned. I do have regular echocardiograms to monitor for any heart issues that may develop from the Herceptin, so far no changes. I also have regular blood work to monitor cancer markers. If anything odd appears more tests will be scheduled.

I had surgery, chemo and radiation finishing that in July and am now finishing up Herceptin which is a one year treatment. I’m now also on Anastrozole for up to 10 years. Good luck to your mom
