    Brenda, there are lots of online sites you can access to see what the treatment is. I had Stage 2B IDC with one positive sentinal node. Did you have a Oncotype DX test? Even if another woman has exactly the same case, there could be microscopic differences that changes your course of treatment. Diagnostics have become down to the cell level and beyond. Your treatment will be tailor-made just for you and your type of cancer. If you don't get an answer here, it is just because someone with that type of cancer isn't reading this at the moment. There is another site called Adjuvant Online... you sign-up as a doctor, and have access. It can give you probably more information than you want. I hope somebody checks in here who can give you some personal experience with this type of breast cancer. All of us here have had our own stories of breast cancer and treatment. No matter what, we ALL support each other and we all know the paths we have walked. Don't be afraid to ask questions. If things don't pass the "gut feelings" do not hesitate to get a second opinion... or even a third. Hang in there, gal.

      Thank you Sharon.....just saw my Oncologist today for the first time (3 weeks out from surgery) He has ordered the oncotype DX test and I go back in 2 weeks. I am borderline Her2 pos (.02 points from being a sure pos) therefore insurance may not approve Herceptin thus the oncotype dx test. I understand the 'gut feeling' and I will not hesitate to get other opinions. Big Hugs to you

      Brenda, I am really glad your oncologist is ordering the oncotype DX test for you. It is crossing "t's" and dotting "i's" for you. If the insurance gives you grief about Herceptin, it is a pain BUT a semi-easy battle to wage and win for you. The...

      Brenda, I am really glad your oncologist is ordering the oncotype DX test for you. It is crossing "t's" and dotting "i's" for you. If the insurance gives you grief about Herceptin, it is a pain BUT a semi-easy battle to wage and win for you. The good thing for you is to have the surgery behind you and just waiting a bit longer for this last bit of information. Heal from your surgery and treat yourself like a queen! You have already been through a lot. Hang in there gal, we are all out here cheering for each other. Please keep us posted. Healing hugs, Sharon
