Your treatment is based on what they found. What stage and how aggressive your cancer is as well as whether or not it is responsive to hormones. Lots of terms you never wanted to learn that you will become very familiar with. Take someone with you if at all possible as well as a notebook or recorder. Lots of information. Too much to process. I met my oncologist and then a nurse came in and thoroughly explained all the chemo meds and side effects to me as well as what to expect and when to call the office. I also had printouts to take home. You'll be fine. We are here for you. Let us know when you get your plan.
