Is there any long term survivors who have had a high oncotype score.  I know that this test is relatively new but I also know that it has been on the market at least 4 years.  So I know that "long term" regarding this test isn't very long term.  I had it done 3 years and 4 months ago.  My oncotype score was 52.  My onc told me that the test had been on the market only about 8 months.  I'm just curious about others who have had an extremely high score and are still clear (so to speak).  I am doing great with no signs of any kind.  Is there alot of others out there?  By the way, I love this site.

Congrats, Meow13. So happy for you.

ursaminor, Your diagnosis is similar to mine. My Onco score was 48. I did 4 rounds of C/ T. The good news is that chemo is very effective on those with higher Onco scores. I am 2 years out and still feeling fine and have had clear mammograms. That dark period in my life has come and gone and will for you too. If you have questions , please feel free to message me. Keep the faith👍 Pat
