@butterfly5 I am so sorry that you are going through this. I was diagnosed with IDC triple negative a couple of weeks ago and am still struggling to process it. I have an oncology appt to talk through results of tests next week and then starting immunotherapy & chemotherapy the next day.

Thee are boards for chemo starters by month that have been a really helpful place to find out information and feel not so alone if that’s part of your treatment. xx

Good luck with your treatment xxx


That’s the same treatment they’re recommending for me. I’m talking to my job about how FMLA xan cover this. Thanks for the info on chemo starters.
Good luck with your treatment too!

Hi butterfly
It is overwhelming and scary, especially tnbc.
But the statistics are improving all the time.
When you are able to start chemo and have a treatmenet plan mapped out, it gets better.
And you will find your way through it.
I’m tn. I’ve changed my diet, cutting out a lot of sugar and eating more vegetables and fibre, not drinking alcohol. I’m running still (but ive only had two chemos so far so I might have to stop). I’m not working though, like you are.
The chemo wards are relaxing places at my hospital and the nurses are lovely- hopefully you will find the same where you are.
Sending positive hugs your way.
