hello I am new just been diagnosed this week it is triple negative grade 3 but they suspect it had already moved to my lungs as they found no lesions on both lungs . Devastated not sleeping been Googling which I don’t think helps.
No don’t worry Letty. I started my treatment early February. I had 3 cycles of EC chemo three weeks apart and am now on a weekly regime of Paclitaxel/carboplatin. After my treatment today I will be half way through. I opted to have chemo before surgery on the advice of the breast surgeon.
What i meant by the plans for the next stage was following results of genetics and MRI scan which I expect in more detail this week. I do have a treatment plan for the rest of my time but I know it can be subject to tweaks as things progress. I have learned that you just have to go with the flow and know that the journey will have a few bumps.
I’m in Leeds - where are you??
Hi my mum is 83 and will be devastated we have a very special relationship. When I do tell her I am thinking of staying with her only because I am still he little girl that she will want to take care off. I am 60 in July and my twins are 25 but still my babies. My partner of 16 years is the same he is not a demonstrative person but he is acting rather strange, not sure he is coping as well.
when did you tell your mum I am worried it may make her I’ll. I should have been in Florida at the end of May for my 60th I was going to swim with the dolphins . I may have to pretend I am there if I have still not told her
thank you for the hug much needed at the moment
She lives with my sister and my sister was going away and I had my mum at my house for 2weeks , I sat her down and told her it was terrible we both cried but I asked her to be strong for me which she is bless her. She went shopping and bought me some turbans incase I lose my hair when I start chemo , I had to tell her as I couldn’t be myself as my mind was all over the place and she would of known I was t right . I have to say I felt much better afterwards , I have told most of my friends and neighbours and I have had so much support it’s been so uplifting. I was 58 2 weeks ago so make sure you enjoy your 60 th make it as special as you are and have fun . My friends came round and brought lunch as I had only just had my lumpectomy it was lovely . Then I had the kids round for a takeaway it was nice to feel normal again .Take care x
i am in Manchester so both Northern .
Ah I understand now I was worried that it may not start my treatment for another 3 months. I may haveMestadtic breast cancer if it has gone into my lungs so I am worried .
I am at the Nightingale at Wythenshawe and they have been amazing
How did your day go are you feeling okay
How are you getting on ? Sending you a big hug x
