GemCarbo - info please


My large TNBC laughed in the face of FEC-T and just got bigger. Now I am facing GemCarbo. My other thread “triple negative - chemo before and after mastectomy?” gives more detail but, basically, my Onc strongly recommended it despite the fact that there is no evidence of spread or secondaries at the moment. I am feeling pretty desperate and upset about starting chemo again so soon. I would really like to hear about how others have coped, what side effects you had and what prescriptions (or other stuff) helped when you had side effects. I am fed up with not knowing what I don’t know and finding out that something could have been done after the event.
