How does everyone cope

Hi Karen


I am under the same position. I have been diagnosed on 18 May 2015 and had Dom mastcomy done on 15 July 2015. I had my 1st chemo on 10th September and after two days I was so sick. I was dehydrated and had water infection.  It’s nearly 3 weeks still I do t have any energy and very tired.  My next chemo on 1st October. I hope every things goes well this time.


i had an appointment to see my oncologist today and discussed with her, which they probably giving me some extra strong anti sickness tablets to prevent sickness.


i hope everything goes well.  It does happen but think positive and be strong.


good luck
