Just to mention NICE guidelines have a really good interactive table that has a list of diagnostics recommended for NHS use, so if you want onco test and they are refusing quote nice guidelines and if they refuse go to the commissioners. Hope this helps.
I was peri menopausal. So for the first 7 months I had to have monthly injections of zolodex (as well as the daily anastrazole) to completely stop my ovaries and then I had my ovaries removed so don't have to have the zolodex now. xx
Hi Melisa. I had a left mastectomy a year ago. The histology showed I had a tiny amount (1.1mm, so bigger than yours) of cancer on my sentinel node. My onc then suggested that I had more nodes removed, but as my surgeon was on holiday I had to wait a couple of weeks to have the surgery. In the meantime my onc suggested I have the onco dx test (he wasn't put off by my node). I had more surgery and 9 nodes were taken which were all clear. Then my onco dx result came back - it was 8 which is low. So my onc decided that I didn't need chemo or even rads. I am now on anastrazole for the next 10 years. Debbie x
