I, too, had the Oncotype DX gene assay done, because I was so borderline for needing chemo. If it wasn't going help me, I certainly didn't want to go through it. The scoring for the test is to determine whether or not you would benefit from taking chemo. My score was in the low range, 16. I just barely made it, as the intermediate range begins at 18. If I had scored in the intermedicate range, I felt I needed to go ahead with the treatment. So now, I am doing radiation, and am half way through the 33 treatments. I will be following this with Arimidex, one of the new Aromatase Inhibitors. I has fewer side affects, and is for menapausal women, like me. I hope you get have the test, if you too are borderline. It is very expensive ($3450), and very new, so many insurance companies are reluntant to pay for it. I kept at mine, and finally they consented.
You will be in my thoughts and prayers...let us know how you do. By the way, my test results were completed in six days...I called the lab in California and talked directly with the staff several times. Maybe they wanted to get me off their backs!!
Take care, Jean in WA
