Just had to share my good news with you! We met with my oncologist yesterday to get the results of my Oncotype DX test...we were very nervous, needless to say. Then the doctor said, "You are in the low range", which was music to our ears! The "low range" results mean I will not have to do chemotherapy. My score was 16, which was only two points below the intermediate range, so it was close. I had decided if it came in in the intermediate range, I would have to go ahead and do the chemo. So now, I am getting set to do radiation, and then will follow with hormone therapy. Here too, I have researched the alternatives, and I will be taking one of the new Aromatase Inhibitors, Arimidex. If you are interested in learning more about the Oncotype DX test, you can go to their website at Genomichealth.com. Take care everyone!
