I'm new here
Hi my name is Sue
Diagnosed at the start of May with Early Stage Breast Cancer Invasive Ductal Carcinoma during routine yearly mammogram and ultrasound. Mother diagnosed at 39yo and cousin at 46 (one year ago). I am 47.
Surgery to remove tumour with clear margins performed 26 May and no nodes were involved. Pathology revealed triple positive result with grade 3 tumour.
I thought due to clear margins that would be it!! I am now about to undergo 4 cycles of chemotherapy and 12 months of Herceptin.
I am really anxious about starting this drug therapy and curious as to how others have tolerated it and the impact it has had on your day to day lives.
It feels a bit like I'm floating down a river being pushed along by everything happening around me and I'm not sure if it even feels real yet.
