First, the good news: the FISH test came back HER2 negative. That is what we wanted to hear. Also, I had a discussion with the oncologist about the "weak positive" status of my ER/PR testing and he said...positive is positive so don't worry about it. OK
Now for the "what are they thinking" part... I have requested from 4 doctors the Oncotype DX testing. As of today, not a single one of them has complied with my request. I could just explode! The oncologist said it would provide no information if the Sentined Nodes are positive. Yes, I agree. HOWEVER, if I do chemo first, we'll never know the SN status. If I do surgery first with SN biopsy and they come out clean, then I will use the onco score to base a decision on chemo. We discussed my need for this test on Tuesday...thoroughly! I discussed this test with my breast surgeon's nurse last Friday...thoroughly! How can they say it doesn't matter???
They're not listening to me. They are on probation...lol! I may fire them!
