Re: starting chemo in September

Hoping to start chemo in September.  Looks like Ill be on Docetaxel along with Herceptin and what appears to be a new drug called Perjeta/Pertuzumab.  Ill be getting the Docetaxel one day then the other 2 a couple of days later to begin with as they may bring on allergic reactions.  Would love to hear from anyone who is having anything similar.  x

Re: starting chemo in September

Hi Lisa,
Totally understand your fears and worries at the moment. Hopefully once you have your chemo start date things will settle down for you. This is a daunting time, fear of the unknown and all that. Try to keep busy and make sure you have plenty of treats. Helps take your mind off other things and we are all here if you need us. You can come and join us anytime even if you end up with October appointment. No reason why you can't run in both camps! I will message the Stars to let them know you are there. Take care. xx

Hi pas the boss
Thank you. Hopefully will get a start date soon. I am really freaking out about this and not handling it at all well. So any support will be gratefully received.

Hi NOGGIN17

 

Welcome to the forum.  It might be better to post on this thread which the September members have already started- I think they'll be more likely to see your post there:
