    I have used it @Sunshine0206 I don't know much about it though, but seems to be in line with what my Oncologist has mentioned to me re stats.

    The oncologist yse it. I've plugged my stuff in every now and again. Just temember with stars though it can't predict which % we will fall in. So in tbat sense it's not really useful.

    Predict uses logitudinal data that is pretty much the best info anyone has. If you have a science brain the size of the samples in V1 will make your eyes cross. Really? That's it? I haven't looked at the current version and the other tool i was aware of, Adjuvantonline, seems to have been out of action for ages. You won't find anything in predict your onc won't be aware of, though it never hurts to check :)

    And now with spelling fixed so it makes sense. Sorry

    The oncologist use it. I've plugged my stuff in every now and again. Just remember with stats though it can't predict which % we will fall in. So in that sense it's not really useful. 

    It can give hope or despair. ..depending on your head space.

    Thanks ladies. It gives me a bit of reality. Keeps me grounded. I see your point @primek on which side of the percent we fall on. Much thanks.

    The tool doesn’t factor in radiation? Any thoughts? @primek @Zoffiel

    Lumpectomy with radio has same stats in most cases as mastectomy. The tool assumes you've had that already given you are putting in path.

    I am sure they talked up the need for my extra treatment more the. 1 per cent or is my maths not working.

    My surgeon spoke of this tool and ran it for me when I was diagnosed. He was at pains to emphasise it was fallible and was a general indicator only. As we know, there are so many variables between us all, different treatments and different responses. He also said, after demurring that advice on post operative treatment was up to my oncologist, that he would recommend chemo even if it upped my chances only one or two points, as that might make all the difference. My oncologist wanted me to complete Taxol for the same reason. I've  been comfortable with my choices as I felt knew the score (no pun intended).

    But aren’t I increasing the rate of ovarian cancer by 1 per cent or was that lower?

    Sorry I know these are questions for my oncologist but that’s in two weeks and this is now and

    @DearB always be guided by your oncologist. He/she knows the absolute details of your situation. The tool does not allow for individual variables.
