Scans - neoadjuvant chemo

Posted by

Hi everyone

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.

Thanks everyone.

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. 

Patience and faith
