I finally start AC tomorrow. I noticed that I already have an MRI scheduled a week after chemo starts. (Funny how it got scheduled without my even being informed of it needing to happen) 

How soon and how often have you gotten MRIs during your neoadjuvant chemo? 

Thankful that they want to check whether chemo is working that soon, but just curious if this is the norm, whether 1 week is enough to know.

My daughter is 24yrs old and starts AC on Friday. I bet they want to make sure it has not metastasized and see if tumor shrinking. I was also told after first treatment you may see less in size and pain will decrease. please let me know how it all turns out. I am concerned they waited long enough to start chemo and hope hers did not advance. the tumor is 18cm in size and breast is tender. ki67=60%
