    I thought it was just me..but the 6th chemo tx has really kicked in.  I'm so tired now and my legs hurt SO bad.  Front and back, the whole leg..I don't know if that's what you would call neuropathy or not.  They're not numb, they just hurt.  I know that everything could be alot worse though and try not to complain.  I just grunt when I stand up or sit down.  LOL.  I don't wear anyth...

      Well hello stranger, haven't talked with you in a while. How are things going? I'm scheduled for my 7th treatment on Thursday. I get new SE with each tx so who knows what's next. I'm just ready for all of this to be over.

          My regimen is scheduled every 3 weeks and I've taken the Neulasta shot from the beginning so it's not like my blood counts went down from the chemo and then he decided that I needed the shots.  My blood work wasn't that great to begin with though (anemia) so I'm sure that has a lot to do with it. I was a little while ago in a forum on the tnbc website about a lady who her doc had given her 4-5 months and they p...

            I know, I really should be grateful that it's no worse than it is.  And I am grateful, just going through a little depressed patch I guess.  It'll be fine.  I really hope I don't put on any more weight then I'll be even more depressed.  LOL.  I asked the onc about radiation or any other treatment after the Cytoxan/Taxotere and he said not looking like it at this time.  I also asked him a...

              I had my 4th chemo 2/7/13 so I have 4 more to go.  I've been a little depressed lately.  I don't really know why, my side effects haven't really changed.  A little nausea, a little bone pain..relatively uneventful considering some that I've read so I should be happy.  I guess maybe depression is a side effect.  I'll have to look into that.  I'm already taking something for that though so...

                I was diagnosed in September with triple negative breast cancer and also had double mastectomies with reconstruction.  I actually just had my 3rd round of chemo, Cytoxan and Taxotere yesterday and I just got back to work after having my Neulasta injection.  I thought that the side effect of losing my hair would be horrible but actually it was much less painful than I thought.  I get tired from it all b...

                  Chemo's different that's for sure!!  My taste buds are all but gone I guess.  I eat but I haven't eaten anything in 2 to 3 weeks that I can say tastes good.  It's either no taste or just a different taste.  I don't sleep very well anyway either and I'm actually kinda looking forward to the steroids for some much needed energy.  LOL.  I never thought I'd say that because I was originally ...

                    That's WONDERFUL news!!  Cancer free!!  The 2nd round of chemo wasn't quite as easy as the 1st.  I expected to start feeling the effects starting on the 5th day and continuing for a few days and then back to normal feeling again.  But I didn't feel major effects until about day 10 and it lasted longer than a few days..as a matter of fact, I still don't feel up to par.  I think I could sleep 2...
