Re: BCI (Breast Cancer Index) Has anyone had this test?

My onc mentioned this test too. I said I wouldn't do it. There is comfort in thinking that the Tamox is keeping me safe and I don't want to know otherwise. I would happily stay on it forever.

Re: persistent low grade fever

My normal body temp after treatment hads consistently been 100. Every time I see any MD they say "do you know you have a temp"? Guessing it is what it is.
