Starting chemo on weds

Hi, had a mx 4 weeks ago and the pathology report found 3 tumours of 5, 2.5 and 0.8 which threw me as it was only 1 at first and was expecting to start radio.

I met with oncologist on Monday and suggested the best way forward is 6 cycles of chemotherapy 3 cycles of E&C and 3 of T instead of the radio which came as a bit of a shock and especially as it’s starting next week.

I really haven’t had much time to get my head in the right frame of mind as it’s been like a whirlwind the last few days  and iwanted to see if there’s any words or wisdom that can help me. I haven’t even had time to think about losing hair and how that will make me feel and being sick and tired. Is there a group for people just starting chemotherapy this month? Any replies will be greatly appreciated x
