Hi My name is Fiona. I am 56 and was diagnosed with TNBC at the end of February. It has been a whirlwind for me and my family and took along time to deal with that unbelievable overwhelming feeling that this diagnosis brings. I am having neoadjunctive chemotherapy before surgery. I am on week 11 of my 12 weekly PC chemo and then I will have 3 weekly AC. I have felt fatigue the most and a horrible metallic taste in my mouth. Just wanted to feel part of a group that are experiencing this journey
Sorry to hear you have been diagnosed with TNBC, I've the same diagnosis, but seeing my oncologist tomorrow for my treatment plan, hope you doing OK, quite a few of us on main breast cancer forum too xx
Hi Fiona I am 43 and have been diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer. I too am having Chemotherapy before surgery. They are planning 6 cycles. Three of FEC and three combined with Docetaxel. I had my first one last Wednesday and it seemed to go okay although I'm feeling a bit weak at the moment. I think I caught it early but can't remember what stage my oncologist said it was if she even said. I will have to ask at our next appointment.
Sorry you are on this journey. I also have TNBC diagnosed in February. My treatment is the other way round - have had a WLE, am now on EC with Paclitaxel to follow. All the best.
