Re: Hi Everyone

You might like to look to see if there is a get together in your area so you can have others to talk to face to face.  http://forum.breastcancercare.org.uk/t5/Events-campaigns-and-meet-ups/ct-p/local_meets

 

I am hoping to make my first meet up of others in this area which is taking place on Friday, 8 November in Winchester.

Hi Joanna,

 

As well as our helpline as my colleague has suggested, BCC also run a live chat service every Tuesday evening between 8.30 and 9.30pm which is dedicated to those with a secondary diagnosis.  The service is facilitated by a nurse and a moderator so there's always someone to talk to in 'real time'.  Here's the link with more information.  It would be good to see you there.

Take care,

Re: Hi Everyone

Hi joanna, I'm sorry you have to join us, after eleven years it must have been quite a shock to receive your secondary diagnosis. I haven't had Docetaxol but just posting to say, the same as Helen, sometimes pains are good pains. I was having pains where I know I have cancer during my last lot of chemo and it was due to the secondaries getting smaller. Have you had any feedback from your bloods as to whether your chemo is working? I would have thought your Onc would probably have stopped you well before 5 cycles if your treatment wasn't working. Do keep in touch, we are a supportive group. belinda.

Dear joanna,

 

Welcome to the BCC forum where I'm sure you will find a lot of support from fellow members.

 

As well as the support on here you could also give our helpline a call for information and support.  The opening times are 9-5 on weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays.  The number is 0808 800 6000

 

Very best wishes

Re: Hi Everyone

Hi,Joanna,so sorry. I can't help you with any advice on your chemo(haven't had it yet as got primary &secondary diagnosis together)
There are lots of lovely ladies on here that can give you advise.
Any treatment is scary and we all have that niggling feeling so you are not alone.sometimes the extra pain is the treatment working,something called tumour flare .
Take care and huge hug,Helen xx

Hi Everyone

Hi everyone,

I`ve just joined, I`ve got secondary BC in my lung, It`s my second lot of chemotheray, had the first lot 11 years ago, it was a hell of a lot worse back then..Got my 5th docetaxol next Friday and I`m worried that it`s not working as I`m having a bit of pain in my lung. I`ve done really well so far and I`m a really positive person but it`s niggling me..
