Chemo is 18 weeks long.
If you want to be bored by the details - neoadjuvant therapy - ie pre surgery chemo to shrink the beasts and then we go from there.
- 3 x 3 wks of FEC (look it up - if you wish) - the HAMMER coming down hard
- 3 x 3 of D - Taxotere - whatev after the FEC
Here's what we do not know. And um, perhaps it is quite critical. If I was a thinking gal. Her2 Status. Again, look it up. ;-)
If the Her2 status is -, well, then the battle continues for 12 more months post surgery, and is more fierce, and life threatening with a probable 50% survival rate.
If the Her2 status +, then the battles is also fierce, but SHORTER, and with an 80% ++ survival rate.
So, there it is.
But De Nile aint just a river in Egypt and I love my new do.
