    I have not had the tumor taken out, they are doing chemo first. I was not asking for PET scan. I am letting the doctor do their job, but i know I have to be my own advocate. If a CT or MRI is not done how do they know if the chemo is working. That is my concern.

      Oh, I thought you had it out. They don’t want it to spread then - maybe they figure if they cut it’ll spread. Makes sense to me

      In 2002 when I had Stage I breast cancer, no one Stage I was prescribed chemo. I had a lumpectomy and 33 radiation treatments, plus Tamoxifen, which I didn't continue. I also didn't have the HER2 test then.

      I felt the news story was mis leading. They should have clarified that it didn’t apply to women under age 50 or women with tumor larger than 1 inch. I’m 41, her2-, er,pr+, bra a-, stage 1, grade 2 and got my hopes up. Oncologist said it doesn’t apply to me as my tumor is 1.25 inches

      Mofields, it may not be our decision as far as insurance coverage. If national insurance becomes everybody's insurance, they will probably only cover what's recommended, more like other countries' insurance.
