I cannot answer your question about  tamoxifen or aromatase, but do have question for you. How did you find out you were  chemo resistant?

I am currently undergoing chemo and asked my oncologist last week how can you tell chemo is working. He said you don't, treatment is based on statistics of what has worked best on previous patients. Do you just have to wait and see if develop another tumor?

Thanks
Laurie

Hi Laurie – please see my reply to Colleen below. Unfortunately, my second lesion did not shrink at all and a third lesion was also noted at pathology which did not show up on scans/MRI. I was strongly ER positive, even though my ovaries were removed at age 44. I'm just one of those ones outside of the norm.
