Chemotherapy TC


I started TC Chemo three weeks ago and am due for next treatment on Friday the 5th February.   I anyone there having the same chemo?

I have lost my hair very quickly and am worried it may not come back!!

The last chemo made me quite ill so they are reducing it by a small amount this time.

I am trying to be positive at this dire time and try focusing on other things.

I would really like to correspond with someone undergoing the same treatment as me?

I wish everyone good health and happiness.



Hi stockwood0,

Thank you for your post. I am sorry you haven’t had any response yet. I am hoping my response will help our members to find you post and share their experience and advice.

Please do not forget that for any clinical questions our breast care nurses are here and happy to talk things through.

Sending you our warmest wishes,


Hi Jan

Sorry things did not go brilliantly and you’ve already lost your hair. It should start growing back when chemo finished. It’s good that your team are adjusting the dose for you.

Come and join us on the February starters. We are all supporting each other and you might find someone on the same treatment.

Healing thoughts and hugs.

I had my first cycle of TC chemo on 5 February. I too felt very afraid and have no idea what to expect in the three weekly cycles. Three days after the first dose I feel totally wiped out



Hi Jan

I’m on the same chemo as you  started yesterday, 2nd cycle due 16th February 

I’m OK still buzzing on the steroids, injections start tomorrow for 7 days.  Had a skin reaction to the steroids  and acid reflux, antihistamine stopped the itch and I’ve got zero base cream to apply after showering, omoprazole and pektac ended the reflux,  drinking loads and loads of water,  taking latulos to help with bowl movement and rinsing my mouth with salt water,  a lot I know but ok so far  hope this helps and you are OK too.
