hit me with your go to question for the chemo dr's
So surgery done and dusted 2 weeks a go now (8.11.2023), lumpectomy completed with 2 cancers being removed from the left breast, as well as all 27 lymph nodes, with only 1 cancer found in that, however the cancer had shown signs they had got it in the nick of time as it was showing signs of spreading out shoots to other…
Have the beginnings of a cold and have chemo today
Hi all I have a slight cold today. A bit of a runny nose and sore through. Do you think they will postpone my chemo. I really don't want to miss of postpone anything as I just want to get it all done on current schedule.
Chemo side effects already ? Or my over stimulated brain? Lol
I'm only 2 full days post my first chemo session, and I'm noticing small things already 😄 Bone pain, belly pain, mouth tenderness, and swallowing needs a little more thought than it used too lol How are our other chemo newbies going? I know everytime I pop on here to read what's been posted, I'm reminded that chemo is…
Cold cap during chemo
Has anyone tried it, did it work to reduce hair loss?
Why can’t I find a local support group???
I live on the Central Coast which everyone is telling me has the second most prevalent cases of breast cancer in Australia. I was diagnosed with early breast cancer in August and have since undergone 2 surgeries. Currently have the “Dracula” drain which I hate with a vengeance. I am lucky enough to have a very loving…

chemo question please?
Hi all, As some of you may have seen from my past post regarding the return of the cancer, or should I correctly say, it was never all taken at that time even though they said they had got it all with clear margins, still so angry . I'm now staring down the barrel of chemo afterwards, as part of my treatment from this…

What a Whirlwind!
Out of sheer luck I found a suspicious lump on my right breast in early June 2023. I didn’t think much of it, but thought I should have it looked at (as a friend of mine had breast cancer at 23). All I can say is thank god I did because after a mammogram, ultrasound and a painful biopsy I was diagnosed with breast cancer.…
