Thank you so much Sue for being so positive & telling me how well your experience was. I will look for the monthly thread. .. Big thanks!
As far as I am aware, chemo should be started within 12 weeks of surgery, so you are still within the recommended time.
Do you know what type of chemo you are having?
I assure you, it will not be nearly as bad as you think. And I'm sure there will be many ladies on here who will say the same thing.Personally, I was not unwell with chemo. I just suffered with fatigue on the first week.
Yes there will be some side effects, but think of all the good it is doing too.
Try joining the monthly chemo threads when the time comes, and then you can talk to others going through the same as you.
Was suppose to start Chemotherapy tomorrow ( 5th June) but panick set in last week. After my mastectomy & full node clearance almost 5wks ago I didnt feel fully healed & ready for chemo ..Also wasnt mentally prepared if Im being totally honest. Spoke to my Oncologist who agreed to delay till 27th June & now received a letter saying appoitment is 16th July .. I will phone up tomorrow to check as Oncologist told me no later than the 27th June.
Just wondering is anyone else felt they had to delay? Im so scared of chemo & the side effects, cant even sleep on a night.
