Good news about no node involvement - I'm guessing you mean your cancer is grade 3 (which is about how different the cells are to normal ones and how aggressive it is) rather than stage 3 (which is about spread - how far the cancer has got in your body)
Chemo and rads aren't pleasant but they 'doable'. If you have a look in the 'undergoing treatment - chemotherapy' section you'll find lots of good info and advice. You might want to join a thread with women going through chemo at the same time - great for support.
Have a look at the info section on the main site as well - they'll have downloadable info about treatments and triple neg cancer.
I had FEC-T chemo - feel free to ask any questions!
hi DJ got my results today, stage 3 triple neg no nodes involved, waiting to see onc now for chemo and rads. this is the scary bit. would love to meet up, but im quite a way from shrewsbury. thanks for the offer keep me updated as maybe one of them i will. x
Hope it all went well - let us know how you got on and what's next for you.
If you are within striking distance of Shrewsbury and fancy meeting up, there's a few of us meeting on Sat 27th in Bistro Jacques. Age range - eary 40s to early 70s. Stage of treatment - still having chemo/herceptin to 6 years NED - so plenty of experience to share. You would be more than welcome to join us.
I'm 50, not exactly a 'younger woman', but I'm in north Shropshire - so probably not too far away from you.
I'm a bit of an 'old timer' - I was dx Dec 2010 with a 5cm, grade 3, ER++, lobular cancer. I had to have the 'full monty' of treatment - mx + immediate recon, chemo and rads, but managed to keep working through most of it. Active treatment finished just over a year ago (apart from tamoxifen) and I was back at work full time shortly afterwards.
2011 was pretty rubbish - 2012 has been much better! Hope your results are OK tomorrow and you get your treatment plan.
