Thanks Roadrunner and Poppet for your replies it has taken me ages to find this thread again.
Its good to talk with some others who are going through the same treatments and to have advise and support.
I am going for my hair cut tomorrow thought it less of a shock to see it coming out in bits rather than chunks then this Friday have to have a Mugga (Heart Scan) think because there is heart disease history in the family they just want to chk my pump is doing ok lol !!
Then Friday 6th March have my 2nd FEC have bought some travel sickness bands to maybe help with the yuckky SE's.
Hope you both keeping ok. Love Linda xx

I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and still suffering from the shock of it all.
I had my first chemo last Friday 13th !!!!! all went well other than the 6hours having to wait ! which didnt help stress levels...
I am having 3 x FEC then 3 x Tax.... After 1st chemo the first three days were a bit yucky then once i didnt have to take all the pills they gave me I seem to be a lot better.
Next week I have to go and have heart scan mid cycle then my 2nd Chemo early March.
As yet all my hair is intact but I have made an appointment to have it cut short so it hopefully wont be too much of a shock when it starts to go.
Just a couple of days ago I have got some really bad spots on my nose and also can feel spots or sores on my head and itchy can anyone tell me is this a usual SE ??
I would love to hear from anyone who wants to keep in touch through this long journey we are all going through we need all the friends and support we can get.
My Family are great though but it is so hard for them just to know what is going on inside of us.
Love and God Bless to all
