Cindy,
Wow! How awesome you had a Complete Pathologic Response! That is great!
I'll be having a conversation 2/22 with my oncologist about Xeloda. My tumor at surgery was 2mm. I've been reading about a low dose of Xeloda for TNBC patients after chemo, surgery, and radiation. Good evidence for lower reoccurrence but not significant enough for survival. Interesting...so we shall see. Anyone have any info on this?

Yes, Pam, I am grateful.  I would reply on your oncology team, but doesnít it seem that if Xeloda is helpful to prevent recurrence that it should also increase likelihood of survival?  Iím sure you are doing your research.

As always, wishing you and others on this site healing and long term survival.  Cindy

Cindy,
Yep...I see my oncologist 2/22. From the research I've done, 83% of those who took Xeloda were still TN free at 5 years and 73% for those who did not take it. Overall survival rate for those who took it was 85% and 81% for those who did not take it. Hard to find info. I'd like to be prepared for my appointment on Monday. If anyone can help, please do.
Hope you all are doing well
Pam
