I had an MRI after my second FEC, and there was no change in the tumour size at all. They expect 50% reduction ideally. They have abandonded the chemo plan for now, and I am going for surgery next week and will resume the T part of FEC-T after my op, and then on for radiotherapy. After the oncologist saw the scan result, they had a meeting and they all agreed to switch my plan to surgery for now. Good Luck x

You might be interested in the Chemo monthly threads begun by members who started their chemo in the same month. I've attached a link to the May group:
