This is my first post in this group. I was diagnosed with TNBC which was picked up following a routine mammogram. 

I started chemotherapy in December and I have just had the second in my second cycle. and started immunotherapy as well. I had dodgy liver results in December so they held off for a month.

I had a PICC line fitted, which I was nervous about, but it was fine and does make life much easier.

I am taking each day as it comes and getting used to my new tiredness levels. I was always a rush about kind of person and I have realised that does not work and slow and steady will win the day.

  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    I was diagnosed with TNBC in April 2022. I had a lumpectomy followed by 3 cycles of EC, 12 of paclitaxel and 10 sessions of radiotherapy. Immunotherapy hadn't been approved for treatment of TNBC when I started my treatment.

    Glad to hear you seem to be tolerating the treatment well.

  • Hi latchbrook

    Thanks for your message. It is interesting how all the treatments seem to differ. My surgery is scheduled for after chemo. I did have some really great news today as following an examination both tumors have reduced.

  • Great to read that your tumours have shrunk.

    Yes, everyone's treatment is tailored to their circumstances which I think is great.
