Ok as many as you know, my slides were not sent out for 6 weeks mad   after my masectomy.
Finally it came back...my surgeons nurse called and said It was 18 +
Almost 19??? confused At any rate, she said it was high for low but low for intermidiate.
She said it was up to me whether I want to see and oncologist to disuss chemo That it is a total "up to me " confused on whether I want chemo or not or just be on tamoxofin.
 
Since I have had cancer before (Thyroid and there is still risudual cancer there becasue they had to leave the parathyroid becasue of calcium and I have a sezure disorder), and they only took one breast I am totally confused.
I am supposed to see the oncologist in the next 2 days ...when ever they can fit me in...
My question is???????????????
What woud any of you do if you were in my position??????
Chemo or not???????

I don't know what 18+ means, so can't comment on that.  But, my opinion on chemo is - if it will improve chances of survival by any amount, I would do it.  I personally didn't have that bad a time with chemo (I was very lucky).  I know everyone handles it differently and there are many drugs out there, but I would fight with everything there is.  Only you can make the right decision for yourself.  Good luck!
L & H,
