Start in the US

Hello! So glad to find this forum. I’m actually in the States and found that I’ll be starting chemo April 3rd. My treatment is 12 weeks of weekly Taxol, A/C every three weeks 4 times, a month break and then 6 weeks of radiation 5 days a week. You would think treating BC would be similar in the States as over the pond but I did notice subtle differences. For instance cold caps are not widely used here. I also got a port implanted yesterday in anticipation of the numerous times being poked.

Also hope to be added to the Facebook group that has been setup. Looking forward to hearing more from the group.

Thanks all,
Chee
