  • Kookieanne, you will know better what to choose after the genetic test results come back. Until then, I would read up on the alternatives so that I felt more equipped to make a decision when the time comes. If you are eligible for targeted therapy, that will probably be the best choice with the greatest chance of effectiveness and fewest side effects.
