Hi, my wife age 35 recently diagnosed with IDC .She has undergone lumpectomy and all lymph node removal. her tumor size 1.5*1.3*1.3 grade 2, no lymph node involvement, she  is 100 % ER/PR positive(8/8,8/8) and her2 negative.oncotype dx test is not avaliable in my place. my oncoligist is saying she will be given 8 chemo session(6 chemo session dose divided to eight) and radiation after that.My wife and myself are of the view that 4 chemos are enough.also my wife was given estrogen injection six years back during pregnency by her gyne saying that heart beat of baby is dim. does  this have any connection to her cnacer. Please advise
