Not surewhere to start but here goes, I have been diagnosed with triple negative BC 2.5cm. My sister was diagnosed 18yrs ago with triple neg and is now undergoing treatment again for hormone receptive tumour diagnosed last year, In addition I have a cousin who had bilateral BC and had bilateral mastectomy. I have been to genetics testing for BCRA1 gene and was advised should have the result in 12-16 weeks.
My treatment plan at the moment is as follows, 3fec + 3 tax followed by WLE ( depending on BCRA1result) followed by radiotherapy. Got results today for SLNB which was clear ( good news). started chemo on dec 4th and despite feeling slight nausea for first few days I am doing fine, I have been reading posts on here and find them inspirational and so positive and nice to feel I am not alone in this difficult journey.
Keep strong x
