Recommended Course of Treatment

In my posting last night, I failed to mention what Trisha's suggested course of treatment is. The doctors have recommended the following: Chemo (Cytoxan, Adriamycin, and Fluorouracil)- This will start on Tuesday, April 22nd. She will go every 2 weeks for 4-6 months, depending on how she responds to the therapy. After that they will consider whether or not another drug (Taxol) needs to be added, which may add another 4+ months to the chemo treatment. After chemo, she'll have a mastectomy and then radiation. She may also need to go through Hormone therapy if her Hormone receptor tests come back positive. Keep in mind that this may change.
