The results of the biopsy showed that the cancer had not spread to my lymph nodes but that it was Grade 2, ER8 PR7 HER-2 1+ The biopsy was then sent to California for an Oncotype test – which, based on my Oncotype Score of 34, meant that I would require Chemotherapy.
I started Chemotherapy on 13th January 2017 and had 6 rounds of treatment. I lost my hair after the 2nd round and already had a short, swingy bob wig waiting to wear – preparation was everything!
In May 2017, I started Radiotherapy and was finally finished in June 2017. I started Tamoxifen and will have been taking it for 4 years in the summer.
My family and friends all agreed that my positivity during and beyond treatment rubbed off on them too. I continued to exercise and work, which has helped tremendously.
