Lena, from what I can gather if you are fit and healthy before treatment starts, it stands you in good stead for what is to come. I'm glad you are keeping active too. I'm getting in as much swimming as I can before my chemo starts. During it, I will try and keep up my running, but if not able, at least a walk every day!!!!
Ok, so you are 74, but I'll bet compared to most women your age you look and feel great!. Good Luck xx
Lena, I am due to see my oncologist on Monday with a view to start chemo the week after - to be followed by mastectomy and reconstruction later in the year. I too will have 6 sessions, but as I'm only 43, they will go the full whack with the chemo, but fingers crossed it will be kind to me. Good luck with your treatment xx
