chemo starting August

Hi I will be starting chemo sometime in August, seeing Oncologist tomorrow.  Would love to chat to others who might be starting this month.


Hi Maz

It may help to attract more users to your thread if you re post in the chemotherapy section, there is a heading there called ‘chemo monthly threads’ and you could add your August one there. Find it under ‘Going through treatments’.

Hope that helps
Best wishes

Hi to all you lovely people

I have recently been diagnosed with BC. Large lump palpable at 5cm although ultrasound showing 28mm. Due to size being treated as invasive but nothing so far detected in nodes. Straight in with chemo starting on Thursday if some recent dental work has settled. Picc going in tomorrow. Am I allowed to say I am crapping myself? Feel like I have just been given a death sentence…every morning I open my eyes realise its real, cry,stop then get up as though its a normal day. I go to work come home and cry some more. Seem to be sleeping an awful lot but don’t know why as not on any meds…
