Re: Abraxane for Metastatic TNBC

Hi Mclaire83,

I don't have any experience of Abraxane (Paclitaxol NAB) but Paclitaxol and I received my SBC treatment in Canada. I look for the patient handout for Abraxane from our cancer center official website and seems should  seek doctor or get emergency help immediately if any heart problem.

Re: Abraxane for Metastatic TNBC

Hi Mclaire

Welcome to board, I haven't been on here long having been diagnosed with secondary in April to lung, liver and a couple of bones. I had my primary diagnosis in 2015 so was quite a shock to be re-diagnosed. I'm not TNBC I'm triple positive so on a different regimen to you but I think most chemos share identical side effects so I can identify with what you're going through with that.

I have kids but not as young as your daughter, it's tough isn't it? I hope you are getting plenty of support and taking things easy, I know that's easier said than done when you just want to be mum and keep things as normal as possible. 

I'm sure someone with similar diagnosis will reach out to you here, as has been mentioned, weekends are quieter which is a good thing I guess as hopefully people are making the most of it with family etc....

Take care x

Re: Abraxane for Metastatic TNBC

I agree with Shi. Lots of people read each post but don’t add a comment as they may not have any experience of their own to add. In fact I viewed your post earlier but don’t have TNBCor lymph node involvement and was therefore going to see if anyone who had the same would add their own experience. Weekends are also a very quiet time on the forum, as I’ve noticed over the years of being a member, so you may not get anyone who has the same diagnosis able to share their experiences during this time. 
I do hope your treatment works well for you, with few side effects and please use the phone lines available as Shi has suggested if you need to speak to someone. Hopefully someone, in a similar position to you will respond and offer advice.

Abraxane for Metastatic TNBC

Hello

im new to all this, had my first round of Chemo on Tuesday and so far (3 days in) feel pretty rotten. Heartburn, shakes and bone aches to name a few side effects kicking my butt. 

I was diagnosed only 2 weeks ago stage 4 BC with avid metastatic lymph node involvement but not seen on PET CT in my organs yet.. 

its such a scary diagnosis and I guess what

im looking for people to share some honest, realistic expectations and experiences with me. I have a 4 year old daughter and life has been going so well, we were such a happy little family and this has hit me so out of the blue and I feel completely lost. 

thank you so much for any reply’s
