Starting chemo in July

Hello, I went for my initial Oncology appointment this morning and was told I’d be starting chemo in a couple of weeks. After getting a Portocath. After finding out if I’ve already had the full dose of the first suggested drugs, or getting the second suggested. (I had chemo back in 1994). Also daily subcutaneous injections for bone marrow growth. Their first preference is FEC-T, or, if unable, then CT. Am not looking forward to the following 18 weeks, but not scared. I’d like to join the monthly thread for July, and would really welcome any advice, hints, to help me prepare, and, of course, be there to offer any support to others. Sharlea.
