I got my oc number Wednesday and it was 28. My dr was expecting higher but still too high for me😕. Going in for my port Monday and starting TC on Thursday. I do not really want to do this, but I do not have an option. I am 50 with stage 2A left breast. Just not feel the whole thing. Really disappointed.

    Sorry you have to be here and join the many many of us who have made it through chemo. I am about 8 weeks PFC (Past Final Chemo). Although it wasn't fun, you will get through it!

    You might want to check out the thread in the Chemo section called:

    "Anyone on just Taxotere and Cytoxan?" You can gain a lot of information there. Also, know that other people's side effects may not be your side effects. We all have different bodies that have varied reactions.

    Best wishes and hang in there…you can do it!
