Hi Randi - great to hear you are doing well. I may be in the same situation as you, just much farther behind. I was node negative, but had an aggressive cancer that is ER neg, even though I found the lump when I was pregnant. I just met with the onco today, and she said that herceptin might be an option for me. Are you ER neg too? I'll also be doing the AC + T. And I have a muga test on Tues. What is that? What does it test for? I'm supposed to start chemo on the 19th, and then get a port after. (they want to get me started soon). What is the herceptin for? Is it kinda like a tamoxifen but for ER neg?
Sorry for all the questions, but it was very empowering going into my meeting today with all of the knowledge that I've gotten from this website. When my onco stated some statistics (my risk of recurrance is 30%) that she got from a computer program, and I asked her if it was the Adjuvant program, she looked kinda startled. It was.
Thanks for all your help
