Starting Chemo in November 2017
Hey all! I love these threads I have seen, and since I will be starting in November (just around the corner) I thought I would get one started. It took me a long time to come to the decision to do chemo (stage 1a, Node negative) but because I had an Oncotype of 25 and a High risk Mammaprint I decided that I needed to just go for it. I start 4 rounds of TC on November 6th, and decided not to go with a port. I am going to be using Polar Ice Caps too, to try and preserve my hair. I am 33 and have a lot of life left to live. I can't wait for all this to be over, and I am so grateful that I do not have to do it alone. I'm sure that most of my fear will go away once I have gone through the first infusion, but right now I am pretty much terrified about how it is going to effect me. I am an education coach and I work in classrooms daily, so I will not be able to work while I am going through treatment. It makes me sad! I love the work I get to do!
Anyone else starting in November? Let's support each other!
