Was wondering if anyone has found it difficult to start a new relationship since breast cancer. I'm trying not to over think it but it scares me to think it could be a possibility. I think it's got to me a bit following an innocent comment from a friend that now I have no breast and experienced cancer this would scare potential partners.
I'm feeeling like I've had a delayed reaction and things are starting to come to the core. Why do I feel the need to be in control of everything?!
Operation was last Oct for breast cancer left mastectomy, axillery clearance, AC chemo x 4 just finished, Taxol next for 12 wks followed by radiotheraphy) being a single woman I've found really hard. My family and friends have been fantastic and are all pitching in whenever they can but at the end of the day I feel alone.
Hello everyone, I've just finished my 3rd AC with one more to go 2nd Feb followed by Taxol which will be weekly for 12 sessions. Being quite a social person I'm finding that I'm feeling like a spectator looking in especially about a week after AC. Today I was so looking forward to catching up with a heap of girlfriends visiting all the galleries in melbourne with champagne at each stop ( its a yearly tradition ) and I was like a zombie! I also got quietly stressed fielding all the questions about my treatment . Repeating myself over and over.
Hello everyone, I hope you enjoyed your xmas. quick message to introduce myself as I'm keen to hear what experiences you have had with AC and Taxol chemo. ( Early breast cancer, left mastectomy, lympnodes removed, stage 3) Hormonal- negative) I've just finished my 2nd treatment of AC ( 22nd Dec) 2 more to go at 3 weekly intervals and then Taxol weekly for 12 weeks. I've been advised that AC is the one that will shake me up a bit with Taxol being a walk in the park but more inconvenient.
Hello everyone, with xmas and new year coming is alcohol a no no? I'm a moderate drinker but was just wondering.. I've started chemo ( AC) for breast cancer with 2nd treatment next Thurs and it would be nice to raise a glass if ok'd. I'll ask when I see my oncologist next week. :-)
