Anyone else blindsided by oncotype testing?
I knew my early-caught ER+ breast tumor and sentinel lymph node were going to the lab for testing after lumpectomy; my husband and I were thrilled with the all clear results, and we both thought that was it for the labs. Then I met with an oncologist I had never seen before (I thought I was there for a post-op check) who told me I needed chemo. I was too devastated and in shock then to follow what he then said about oncotype testing and my score. Oncotype what? Later on, looking at my records on the portal, I saw a form saying my tumor had been shipped off for the additional outside lab test. But I feel like an info ball was dropped somewhere. Anybody else experience this?
