ER positive , how effective is chemo ?

Hi everyone 

I hope you are all as well as possible 

I just wondered how effective neo adjuvant chemotherapy usually is  when treating hormone positive BC ? 
I didn’t have a complete response to mine ( it was to try and shrink tumour before surgery ) and I wondered if this was common or not ? 
I’ve heard that TNBC usually has a better response ? 
Just looking for your experiences please

Chemo targets fast dividing cells. The problem with hormone positive, HER negative breast tumor is they are not as fast dividing as the other two. Not even the grade 3 ones. So not having a complete response is common. But we do have endocrine therapy and that’s our big guns for these types of tumors.
