RE: Triple Negative IDC

by Tricelyne - April 04 at 3:09 PM

I have stage 2 triple negative IDC as well and started with 4 rounds of chemo that I will follow with surgery. Mine had not spread prior to me starting chemo. The combination of chemo drugs I am on seem to be the right ones for this type of cancer as my tumor all but disappeared 7 days after my first round of chemo. The fatigue has been the hardest part for me, with it gradually getting worse each round as your not fully recovered from the previous round. I see the oncologist and surgeon again on my last chemo day to discuss next steps and timing to do my surgery. Chemo is not easy but can be manageable. To me the long term results made it worth doing.
There are extenuating circumstance why I need to keep the discretion at work at the moment and why I am trying to be creative at hiding it there. My boss and the critical people know of my cancer and are supportive of me through the process otherwise. I was avid at the gym prior to starting chemo and have the clearance to continue to do that during chemo as much as I feel up to it. For my the gym quiets the mind and helps me sleep better in general. The biggest challenge for me is that I don’t want to wear my wig to work out, but will need to change
I have a gym in my office that is great and I want to continue to work out. Most people in my office don’t know I am being treated for cancer. Looking for ways to be descrete in hiding the hair loss in the locker rooms etc.
