I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma breast cancer in May 2009. I have had the tumor removed and have clean margins. I am T2 N1 M0, Estrogen Positive, HER2 Negative, 1 node was positivie. I have had all the test on the rest of my body and everything was clean.
My question is about chemo. I am taking TAC. I have had 2 treatments so far--they have made me very sick for 14 days or more. I was told I need to have a total of 6 treatments. I was wondering what you think about having 3 full treatments and the last 3 half dose treatments.
Thanks for taking time to answer my question
