Hi janisem, welcome to the forum Smiley Happy

 

Please come and join the monthly thread for "Treatment starting August 2014" not sure how to send you the link but someone from BCC might do that.  Its in the Going through Treatment, Chemotherapy Monthly Threads section.  There are lots of lovely ladies who have started or are just starting their treatment, so it's a great place for sharing experiences,  picking up tips and just generally supporting each other.

 

See you there Smiley Happy

New to the forum

Just wanted to say hi, struggling to sleep was browsing the internet and came across this forum. I'm 35 and have advanced breast cancer, I have just completed 6 cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (FECT-T) and have surgery for left mastectomy and auxiliary clearance booked for the 18th of August, as this will be followed by 5 weeks of radio I can't have reconstruction until next summer. Any advice, tips, or story's to share would be greatly received, just a bit nervous xx
