When should I expect to be scanned to check response to chemo?
I've completed 2 of 6 cycles of chemo and have no idea when this will be. Not seen my oncologist since starting.
I had mine after round 4.
I had 4xEC followed by 12x paclitaxel. I had scan after fourth Ec which was half way through my plan.
I had 3xFEC and 3xdocetaxel/trastuzumab/pertuzumab. Got scanned after the FEC and then again at the end.
