Hi, I hope this is ok to post.
Its not me going through IBC its my best friend. She is also BRCA2 so has to have the double mastectomy and later down the line a hysterectomy. She is 35 years old, we are completely crushed at what she is going through but trying to stay as strong as we can.
She was diagnosed in May, has had her last chemo 10th Nov, and had her picc line removed, which is really good news. This week she is really bad, but she has been all the way through, we do what we can to get her by as comfortable as possible.
As I said her last chemo was Nov 10th her scan is scheduled for 21st in the afternoon, but she doesnt have a hospital appointment with the plastics team until 6th Dec, this isnt even penned for surgery just an appointment. Can I ask if this timing seems right to you?
She has been having chemo every 3 weeks. That to me seems an awful long time in between. I am just unsure. I can only think they know what they are doing but even she is really worried about the timing of it all.
Can you advise please
