Re: NEWS from ongoing ASCO 2017: shorter chemo for stage III OK

I'm trying to gather as much information as I can. I love the idea of 6 treatments instead of 12. I also know fear jumps into the equation pretty fast so I'm trying to get the facts together so I can talk with my oncologist. I'm Stage 2bT4N0M0 and being treated at University of Connecticut Medical Center.

The article seems to only mention FOLFOX or CAPOX - not sure about 5-FU. Does anyone have information on 5-FU with this study?

behconsult - Do you happen to have links to any of the research articles you read? Where are you being treated? Did you do FOLFOX or 5-FU?

LPL - what are SNP's

kfgardella - my T4 sounds similar to yours and that's what put me in the higher risk category. I had 45 clear lymph nodes and clear margins with surgery. Where are you getting treated? I'd love to hear more details about how the discussion/decision went with your oncologist if you're okay sharing. Were you doing 5-FU or FOLFOX?

Thanks everyone :)

Thanks LPL - I'll read the article. It will be helpful to have that understanding when I get the results from 23andme

Hi Kobe, if this (your 23andme result) feels Interesting to you, and you have questions after getting your results. (You will need to now how to search your raw data to find SNPs of interest).
I'm here if I can be of assistance.
Kind regards /L

That's great - thanks. I just mailed it in on Monday so it will be a little while before I get the results.
