My first visit to oncology was in November 2013 where I expected to be told about 18 weeks chemo on a 3 week cycle, but to my surprise the consultant said they were running a trial as a lot of people go through chemo without needing it and I was in that group, I signed up, the tests showed I didn't need chemo, just 3 weeks radio in January 2014, still on tamoxifen, and mammograms since then have been clear, number 5 is due later this year

I’m a BIG proponent of the MammaPrint test, it checks 70 genes to give a good view of whether you need chemo. I did, but so grateful the test was available to me. I highly recommend it.
