Hey guys, so just had a double mastectomy, and am scheduled to start chemo week after next (just waiting to get a date to have my port put in now…)
Does anyone have any tips for getting through it the best way possible, and/or what it was like if you’ve gone through it?
It’s 4 rounds of dose dense A/C and 4 rounds of DD Taxol… if that makes a difference.
oncologist has called in lots of anti-nausea meds, and the required “intro to chemo class” I took yesterday has, at least, reassured me I’ll make it through, and that it may not be quite as bad as the movies or my teenage reading of Lurlene McDaniel books have made it seem… but I’m still a little nervous (of course)
also, I’m laughing because as a “New Topic” I’m getting a “Your Topic is Similar To” bar on the right, and the number one recommended similar topic is: “Getting a Mule Companion” so… yeah…
