I will see my medical oncologist for the first time in about 2 weeks. My BS has prepared us for the possibility that chemo will be suggested. My diagnosis is IDC, stage 1, grade 3 and the tumor was a little over 1 cm. My 7 nodes removed were clean, however my margins weren't clear and I had a re-excision last week, making them now clear. I am ER/PR+ and HER2-. I will have radiation and am planning on hormone therapy in the near future, but his suggestion of POSSIBLE chemo took me a bit by surprise. So if your stats are similar or the same and you had or will have chemo and don't mind sharing, can you tell me why?
