I think this falls into my mindset of"you miss more for not looking than not knowing"
I agree :
get as much info as you can up front, tests, referrals, follow ups etc.
there is WAY more available now than when I was at Dx and early Tx phase
I had pCR from chemorad so NO tissue to check at resection. All we had to go on was the initial biopsy.
At this point in time, if doing it all again ( NO thanks anyway !!!
I would absolutely bank samples and have tests done.
Thanks for sharing here
