I received my liver biopsy results: 0% - ER 0% - PR - HER2 - equivocal (we are now doing a more sensitive FISH test on it, which takes a few more days)
Initially I had a small amount of ER, so it is better to be negative as it will open me for clinical trials.
I tried to research HER2 - Equivocal but it is very difficult for me to understand the articles. Will the FISH test determine if it is HER2- or HER2+ or will it still be more of a grey area.
I am on Xeloda and my 27-29 marker went from 80 to 89. He is having me stay on it despite the increase. I am not sure if this is because the number didn't increase that much or as I have only been on the Xeloda for a short time, maybe he is thinking that the number will decrease with time.
I think that my PET scan and MRI will be in late September but I will confirm with nurse later today.
Are clinical trials only entered when a chemo is no longer working?
I am feeling pretty good on the Xeloda.
thank you for listening and I believe that God has a good plan for me and for all of us! Continue on warriors!
