sorry to hear of your diagnosis,
i was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer in feburary , im about to have my last dose of chemo number 6 of fec100 then have to have radiotherapy but not sure how many yet
hope you're feeling ok
Determination and persistence are the foundation for success x
Yes me too. I am on 3 x fec and then 3x docetaxal. I have round 3 coming up next week. surgery then 3/4 of radiotherapy. Well that's this year taken care off!!
I am Early stage, grade 3 Onc is guessing at. My Oncologist is confident all will be fine and "I will get to see my grandchildren". which as far as I'm concerned that is all I want to know. Oh of course it not being hormone responsive means you won't be on Herceptin/Tamoxifen for yrs.
Hello, i had grade 3 triple negative breast cancer last year, had 3 months of Docetaxal and the C of FEC. Then had 20 sessions of R/T. I had my tumour and some lymph nodes removed before i started any of the treatment, my lump was only 11mm, and my nodes were not affected. Thank God.
Let us know how you get on hun xx
another grade 3 triple negative here, with infiltrating ductal, diagnosed February, had MX, and complete node clearance, with 1 node affected. Also had a chest expander implant fitted at the same time of MX.
I have just had round 3 of FEC chemo and next cycle start on the T (taxotare) chemo for another 3 rounds.
I will then have 3 weeks of radiotherapy.
If you have any questions that I can help with, just ask.
Just found out I am triple negative too. Don't know a great deal apart from the 'no drugs' bit. Starting chemo first, 6 rounds of FEC and then discussing what's next depending on my response. Have a large lump and lung nodules that they want to shrink first. Breast lump is already shrinking after 1 round of chemo so fingers crossed that something is happening to the lungs too xxxxx
Like you I have infiltrating ductal TNBC diagnosed after a routine mammogram at a time when i was feeling fitter than I have for years so it was very hard to accept.
I had my op on 18th April and started chemo on 24th May. I am having 6 cycles of FEC and then they will decide whether I will have 15 or 20 sessions of radiotherapy.
I will have 3rd chemo on Thursday and so far they are unpleasant but manageable. For 10 days I am nauseous, though never sick, and absolutely exhausted. Then on day 10 it is as if someone flips a switch and I`m fine until the next time. I have learned not to overdo it though and still take regular rests even when I feel ok.
My 2nd chemo was worse than the 1st but I`m sure that was because it is so hot now here in Spain - even in the shade on my terrace it is over 30C by 10.30 and because I didn`t drink enough before and during the session. I was so concerned for a fellow patient who had just been told she had a mass in her brain that I forgot to drink and paid the price. She has since been told it is benign and nothing to do with her BC so don`t let that scare you.
With the support of all the strong and beautiful women in this group you can get through this. I am learning to accept that I have to get through the next few months in order to enjoy the rest of my life as I still have things I want to do.
One really positive thing has been the support of family and friends which has been overwhelming and has given me a confidence lacked before.
Good luck on your journey from a fellow warrior, big hug,
mary in nerja
