I realize that I have not been here in a long time. This breast cancer proved to be more involved than I thought. When I got the results of clean margins and clean nodes I figured I was heading to radiation and then done with it. BUT that cancer was very aggressive. On a scale of 1-3, it was a 3. Also it is "triple negative". Positive cancer can be treated with Tamoxifene or similar drugs. There is nothing for triple negative so I was recommended chemo. I am doing Taxol once a week for 12 weeks. I started February 12 and I have 5 more treatments to go. The side effects have not been too bad except for rumbly tummy, NO energy and losing almost all my hair. When I am done with chemo. I have to do radiation.
