Re: diagnosis Metaplastic breast cancer anyone else out there?

Great to hear that you are doing so well. I have metaplastic, triple negative BC. I was frightened when they  told me how rare this thing is but am now back to being positive. Diagnosed at the end of January and surgery for wide local excision and lymph node biopsy was done on 14/02. I’m recovering well from the surgery but next appointment on Friday this week and I’m beginning to feel anxious already. I’m trying to think of it as one step at a time but it seems a very long road. Have to have chemo and radiotherapy. 

Its good to hear about people still doing well years on gives us all hope x

Hi Debs, my breast cancer was also metaplastic and you’ll be pleased to know mine was diagnosed in April 2012..and I’m still here 😊.. i was a bit shocked when I was told and there isn’t much information about it either .. I just think to myself it’s just like any other invasive breast cancer with a posher name... lol x

Hi 

How is everyone doing? Got through my 7 cycles of chemo and just had my wide local excision. radiotherapy to go. Its been hard, CJ  I have a 2 year old and I just look at her and dust myself off again it makes you keep going and it doesnt matter whether your 30 or 70 glad to hear your are keeping a positive attitude I really do believe it makes all the difference.

I was diagnosed in Feb, had a Wide local excision in April, good margins and clear lymph nodes. Chemo started in May. 7 cycles, 3 of EC chemo and 4 of paclitaxol every 2 weeks. Last one is in 2 weeks time, then radiotherapy. My tumour was a mixed squamous and adenocarcinoma. I have good days and bad days, it's scary, wished I  had a more common type of breast cancer and not triple negative! Even better would be not to have it all.
