Had my second round of AC yesterday felt grand after . Feeling ok today just a bit tired . Got extra anti sickness tablets so they seem to be working well .
My friend was recently diagnosed with breast cancer aswell we are both under the same team . I met with her in the hospital yesterday she looked great and we were chatting about how our appointments have been going .
Shes a couple of weeks behind me as she’s yet to start treatment. Anyway I told her about my meeting with the oncologist and he told me it was curable, my husband was at that meeting too and it wasn’t as if I was dreaming !!
She said that the oncologist would never say that as if they did they would be sued by patients!!!!!
She really got me down yesterday I am trying to be so positive about all this and now I’m back to thinking the worst !!
i really don’t think she meant anything bad by saying that to me .
Sorry to moan about this .
Hope everyone is feeling and keeping well .
BigJean i think you need one of these
What you have to remember is everyone is different, we might all have breast cancer but we all have different kinds and all have different treatment plans. Try not to let what your friend said bother you, your oncologist knows what he/she's doing and they do this every day.
My oncologist told me mine was an easy one to get rid of and it wouldn't be a problem. So basically he told me it was curable so they do say it. But maybe your friend has had a different experience that makes her think different.
Don't ever be sorry for moaning, it's what we need to do sometimes, tomorrow is another day closer to the end of all this poopiness, you'll do it because you can.

Hi Thescriptfan ,
thank you so much for that and your kind words . I’m feeling a lot better today.
It just really put me down after she said it but I’ve put it out of my mind and as you said everyone is on a different treatment plan .
I’m just going to focus on mine and get through this for my family.
Thank you again so much .
Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
