  • I had 12 months of chemo various ones , surprisingly I felt good , tired but if I went for a walk it stopped that, strange taste in mouth but ginger tea helps. Everyone experiences things differently and your journey maybe different but tell your drs and they can often prescribe something to help you. 

  • Thanks for sharing - hoping you’re doing well xxxxx

  • Hi SimbaCat

    Everybody's experience of Chemo is different. I to have triple negative and I'm having my Chemo first. My first 3 sessions of EC were very manageable but im finding the T part a bit more challengin. Make sure you keep a note of any side effects and please talk to the nurses, they are there to help you xx

  • Thanks for sharing this with me xx 

    sending you my very best wishes xx

  • I too have TNBC. Was diagnosed back in May and had 6 rounds of Chemo. I found it relatively manageable. Some peripheral neuropathy and a bit of indigestion and luckily I wasn't too tired. The thing that I found the worst was the metallic taste in my mouth and my mouth feeling like sand paper. I was on the FEC T and had to give myself immune boosting injections for 5 days after each Chemo session. They can make you feel achy. My first three rounds were not too bad but I found that when I switched to Docetaxel for my last three I felt the effects of the injections much more. I had my lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy in October and I am due to start my Radiotherapy on the 26th of January. I don't know about anyone else but I feel quite achy when I get up in the morning or if I've been sat down for a long time. I've got lots of twinges that I didn't have previously. I think I probably need to do more gentle exercise on a regular basis so I don't stiffen up.

    Best of luck with your treatment Relaxed

    I started chemo yesterday - I feel fine but I guess it’s too soon to know how any side effects will make me feel x
