I was supposed to start radiation on 12/21. I'd had my body mapped and was prepared to start treatment. That morning, I had an appt. with my oncologist who asked if I had the results of the Oncotype DX test? I'd never heard of it. She called my surgeon oncologist (who happens to be her husband). He hadn't requested the test. My radiologist oncologist never mentioned it either. Long story short, she called my radiologist and cancelled the treatments until after she had the test results. She apparently was the person responsible for ordering the test and didn't do so. She blamed her husband. I made an appt. to see him to find out why he'd dropped the ball. He yelled at me and said it wasn't his responsibility. Well, I've learned it takes anywhere from 2-3 weeks to get the results. I had my surgery on Nov. 20. I have stage 1 bc with no lymph node involvement. I'm wondering if there is anyone who can shed some more light on this test and its importance. The oncologist said it will determine if I need chemo in addition to radiation. If she'd ordered the test after my surgery, the results would be here. I'm very upset because it is just delaying any treatment and prolonging getting my life back. I am planning on getting a second opinion from a different oncologist not affiliated with the group of drs. I've been going to. I feel as though the surgeon and the oncologist have dropped the ball and they don't care. Any help?
