Hi, I had a biopsy done on 2-1-17 and showed positive for TNBC-IDC. Had surgery on 3-1-17, lumpectomy and 2 sentinel lymnph nodes were clean. My tumor was smaller than 2cm. but not too much smaller. I had my first chemo (Adriamycin & Cytoxan) on 3-20-17. The side effects have been extremely challenging. I got my chemo on Monday afternoon and was fairly okay until Wednesday afternoon. I think I started having nausea sneak up on me and I was not taking the anti-nausea meds like I was supposed to, because I have a hard time taking Rx drugs because I have never had to before and I don't like putting bad stuff in my body. So Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday I felt pretty yucky. You can keep in touch with your clinic and they can have you come in and they put fluids and medications in your body to help with side effects. I have a port in my chest that they use. Important to keep up with anti-nausea meds the first week after chemo. Everyone is different and every day can be different. But if you are feeling bad the clinic can often put things in you to make you feel much better.
