I hope you are all as well as possible?
I had breast conservation surgery on the 10th of October to remove an oestrogen receptor primary tumour, DCIS and 15 lymph nodes which came back with 11 including cancer cells. Grade 3, stage 3.
I am on a 3 x EC and 3 x Doc, 21 days apart cycle. Then Radiotherapy (not sure yet how long between 1-3 weeks) then Tamoxifen for 10 years.
The first week has been a bit of a rollercoaster - first night nausea, then my neulasta injection which sent my body into an acute high - with a crash on the Sunday like the worst hangover ever, only I hadn’t enjoyed the party the night before!
My sickness has been well managed by the meds (although my husband has become a pharmacist in training as chemo brain meant I really couldn’t get my head around the instructions). No temperature spikes so far, but headaches, lots of headaches. Very interested if anyone else with headaches suffered from migraines previously?
Going into week 2 feeling not too bad, a bit spaced out - but I have felt like I am living in a bubble since diagnosis so that’s nothing new!
Take care everyone - we got this!!
