Re: Recently diagnosed with triple negative BC and also have an anxiety disorder

Hi rik I had my first FEC on weds I've been out for lunch today. But I have also been prescribed a low dose of diazepam which has helped me with anxiety and I took it the morning of my first treatment. I hope this helps as I'm was very anxious about and still am in parts but I'm thinking the quicker I do it the quicker it will be over with hope you can get something to help really soon xxxxxxx

Re: Recently diagnosed with triple negative BC and also have an anxiety disorder

Hi Sarahd-1, I was due to start FEC-T last Friday, but had to cancel due to acute anxiety. I have seen my GP and have now been prescribed some mess to keep me calm. The team looking after me are aware of my anxiety. Unfortunately the anxiety reoccurs each time I need any medical or dental treatment and is long standing. I am seeing another consultant on Tuesday next to look at alternative options. Rx

Oh dear, you poor thing! You have done very well so far, having the lumpectomy and although it's a nuisance being triple negative, it's good that your nodes were clear.

 

Have you had any therapy to help with your anxiety? If not, you should see your GP and see about getting some to help along the way. Also try the Head Space app, my daughter is anxious and finds that helps.

 

I go between feeling sad and a bit bitter about being diagnosed (still waiting for my lumpectomy etc) but don't feel particularly anxious about it but I am sure many people do. You should be able to get suitable support to help you tackle the chemo, once it's under way, I'm sure you will manage. Make sure you GP and/or your Breast Nurse knows how you are feeling.

Recently diagnosed with triple negative BC and also have an anxiety disorder
