Hi lovely ladies . Sorry I haven't posted On this forum for a while . I always think about my pink distress and hope you are all well. I'm just near the end of chemo , one more week to go and not feeling too bad. I just wondered if anyone had any information on chemo trials for triple negative . I had. Heard there was a triple negative one . I just want to do all I can to beat this cancer and starting to feel a bit scared with chemo coming to an end . Any information. Would be greatly appreciated . Much love x x
Hi everyOne . I went to see the oncologist today to work out the treatment plan . Being under 35 with triple negative cancer just seems like such a bummer even with a small cancer . She calculated an approx recurrence rate of 10 percent. I know that means a survival rate of 90 percent but it just doesn't seem quite good enough when I have a ten month old baby . I guess I'm just lOoking for some positive stories because this is all so hard to take in.
Hi ladies . Thank you all for the loverly messages after my pathology results . It is so comforting to have this support and I just wish a pray that we all can have good news . I'm home today after ten days in hospital following the double mastectomy with expanders . I was so excited to see my little boy but this turned into being quite upset when I realised that I still don't have the stength and energy to look after him. I am so blessed that I have my mum to care for him but it just makes me so angry that this cancer is stopping me from being a proper mum to my little boy.
Hi lovely ladies. The last two days have been so emotional. My pathology results came in and the surgery said that they were the best we could expect. There was no spread to my lymph nodes and it looks like most of the tumor was taken out by the core biopsy . I couldn't believe it. Because it was aggresive and I'm triple negative they are still going to do the chemo just to be extra sure . I feel like I have been given a second chance to have a life with my son. I guess I feel more in control now I know what I am facing and the treatment I have to do .
HI everyone. Has anyone done ivf in between surgery and chemotherapy starting. My window of opportunity is only small as I don't won't chemo to be held up because of it and I want to be able to speak to the oncologist first before I start the ivf drugs just about concerns with the drugs and cancer. Just wondering if anyone else has had some advice on this. It looks like I'm a triple negative cancer and I'm going to have my ovaries out because I carry the gene so ivf will be our only option but I don't want the ivf drugs to be a risk .
