Another triple neg survivor here! I was dx in August 2009, had surgery plus back in to increase safety margins, 6 x FEC chemo and then rads which all finally ended in march 2010. Had first mammo and check up in September 2010 and all well!
As the other ladies are saying, chemo IS nasty but IS do-able and triple neg responds well to chemo, so go with it and bear it, knowing you are zapping it!
there ARE good sides to being triple neg is that we dont have to cope with 5 years or so of tam or other hormone treatments which can knock you out and apparently once we get to between 5-8 years (depending on which research you read) there is very little chance of it coming back and we are no more at risk than anyone else who hasnt had the dreaded bc!
Good luck with your treatment - there is fantastic support here on this site whenever you need it. Everyone is so willing to help - I couldnt have got through without it!
