My Oncologist rang yesterday to say that my blood test for BRCA had still not returned as he hoped, I have now missed the starting criteria required, you must start with 8 weeks of your last chemo cycle. It could be that I am not BRCA positive, but am now on "watch and wait" which in its self is a scary place to be! I am obviously very grateful to have gotten thus far but have a fair amount of wobbles recently, whilst putting on a brave face for the family......who all seem to think I have been miraculously cured. I have decided to leave them in there ignorance as it really is bliss!
N.B. Doctor told me that this month if you are BRCA positive Olaparib is now available for first line maintenance via the NHS.
