Im devastated, terrified and angry! Newly diagnosed.
I can't believe I have to write this. I am 36 years old and was diagnosed with triple negative stage IIB invasive ductal carcinoma, just last week. To say I am terrified is an understatement. My treatment team says news research has showed for this kind of cancer, to do chemotherapy and immune therapy, first is standard. Relying on the doctors for my life is so scary. I said to be aggressive as possible! And I would do a mastectomy tomorrow but they said right now, to try chemo first. But they assured me if it doesn't shrink, or gets bigger than we would go straight to surgery.
I had a Port placed today and starting chemo Wednesday. I am so worried about how it will make me feel and if it is effective.
I have not stopped crying.
