After being diagnosed in January with grade 3 idc and two surgeries I am now due to start chemo at the beginning of April. Just wondered if anyone else is?
I am seeing oncologist next weds to discuss which type but as I had one node positive and one with a micromet I am thinking it may be tac??
Mummycrow, I also had bilateral on 4th March and haven't had date for the start of my chemo yet, although I have been told it should be sometime in April.
My surgeon started me on Tamoxifen 2 weeks after the op when they realised that my wound wouldn't be healed in the near future.
I'm sure that it's right what EAM28 says though that they weigh it all up and know what is safe.
I know that it's a worry but we have to trust that they know what they are doing.
I hope that you get a date soon too.
Is there any particular reason why you haven't had a date yet?
Start date for me is the 17th (fingers crossed)... thought it might be next week but surgeon wants a little longer for my wound to fully heal.
Well done to all tge ladies who have started and good luck to all starting this week.
Positive starts so far which is great xxxxxx
My appointment with oncologist was cancelled yesterday, and I am booked in for a skin graft next Tuesday, so I still have no start date for my chemo yet. I too just want to get it started so it can finish quicker!
Good luck to everyone who is having their first session this week and well done to those who have already started for being so positive for the rest of us 🙂
Keep well everyone 🙂
How did you get on, can you start tomorrow? I am going for my wound check today to see if I can start, fingers crossed xxx
Day 6 feeling much more human, eating very well, good appetitie, thought I would put on weight not working, walking dog etc but thank goodness haven't done- if anything I have lost a pound! Good luck to all you ladies starting chemo today and tomorrow! xxx
