Just Started Chemo

Hi Everyone, I am new to all this. Just wanted some hints and tips on coping with Chemo. First session not too bad,some of my gums are swollen and I am ichy “down under” Am taking plenty of fluids. Thought I was coping well, and now find out that my 91 year old Mum also has Breast Cancer and is undergoing a Mascetomy on Monday. No history of Breast Cancer in the family until I was diagnosed.

hi cookie - so sorry you and your mum bless her have had to join this club…this section doesn’t seem as busy as the newly diagnosed section so join lots of us there as we’re at the same sort of stage roughly…I start chemo next week…dreading it…feel free to send pm if you want…mary x
