Like so many people on this site, I didn't expect to be here and writing this. My name is Liney, I'm 41, live in Greater London with my beloved and our cat. I was diagnosed with a grade 3 triple negative breast cancer yesterday.
I would love to connect with people on a similar path, we are stronger together and solidarity is going to mean so much.
Hi lovely welcome to the forum. I’m sorry to hear about your diagnosis I’m sure like many of us, it was quite a shock. You have come to the right place though. Full of women going through similar experiences with TNBC who support each other all the way. I was diagnosed in February and had scans etc then lumpectomy and just had my first Chemotherapy session on Tuesday. Happy to support with any questions x
My journey has been ok so far. At first it takes a while to get your head round it all but then the only thing we can do is fight and I got to the point where Im just focusing on the finish line.
It took a while initially to get a plan of treatment and there were things that were delaying my next steps and I was sent for different scans. I had a lumpectomy and 1 node removed. They found out that that node had some cancer cells in it. So I am grade 3 stage 2 TNBC. I then moved hospital because I requested to (such a long story). My plan is 4 sessions of EC chemo every 2 weeks and 4 sessions of Taxel every 2 weeks. I had my first on Tuesday and I’m so surprised but I have no side effects so far which is amazing, although my blood sugar did go high. I don’t think the whole journey will be a walk in the park, but nice to have a good start.
Have they told you what treatment you may need to have?
