I recently was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer and will be taking on chemotherapy Tuesday. I’m scared and still trying to wrap my head around this. Has anyone went through breast cancer? Any advice? All thoughts are certainly welcomed.

      When I had chemotherapy i took me a blanket a book and a light snack and keep plenty of ginger chews on hand. I rest for the first 3 days after treatment and day 4 I felt better.

      I was diagnosed last year in November two months after my mom passed away from it. To be honest, I was kind of waiting for it to happen. But in my moms case, she was diagnosed with stage 4 from the get go and lived with it for 20 years! In a way I am thankful to her because it made me more diligent about my own health and my Breast cancer was caught early. It’s scary and tough but we can do it!

        @Maraka I’m sorry to hear about your mom. 😢. I’m thinking I’m at stage two. I’m scared, but I’m ready to get this over with.

      3rd round of chemo was the worst. Remember that they give you a steroid with the chemo. It can make you feel good and you can tend to do too much.

        @cjoite thank you for the heads up!

      They said I was a trooper. Treatments are so advanced now. I never had any nausea during chemotherapy. While I was off work I had the energy to repaint the inside of my house.

        @cjoite that is awesome!! I’m glad things worked out for you like that! I’m praying for the same treatment myself. Thank you for your prayers!

      💕 my prayers are with you. Attitude is everything going through with breast cancer. I know this may sound strange but….I thanked God for this because I said I was happy to take this on if it spared my mom & my sister. First woman in my family (that we know of) diagnosed with it. That was 18 years ago now.

      I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 42 years old. I did radiation and chemotherapy.

        @cjoite I’m 43. How was it for you if you don’t mind me asking. I know everyone is different.
