Calling all Australian Sisters!

I'm in Canberra and have just done my second chemo treatment.  I'm have 3 cycles of FEC then will have 3 cycles of Taxotere and 12 months of Hercepten.

It might be nice to see how many of us are in Oz and if we aren't too far away from eachother try to organise a meeting.

Hello everyone!

I've now done two rounds of chemo with the new immunotherapy drug. I'll have a scan in a week and a half to see if anything is happening.

I'm not sure if I posted exactly what we know now. So here goes, and if I have please forgive my chemo brain.

The cancer is a particularly nasty one and it's spread to my adrenal glands and if I did nothing I'd have maybe a couple of months. The new immunotherapy drug can only be administered with chemo. That combo may give me up to 12 months if I'm lucky, so I'm trying for lucky.

I'm feeling ok, the chemo is palliative, so not too hard on me. I'm really at peace with everything, just trying to get everything organised. I have lots of wonderful people around me, not the least who is my husband, my rock.

I'll let you all know what happens when I get the results of the scans.

Trish

Yay, Trish......fingers crossed for great results with the scans. You know already that we have been chatting so all good.

I'm free again goils!! Yippeee me!!!!......Lol. back being tossed back n forth between my girls so the eldest can go back to work. I'm happy about that as it gives her a good sense of independence.

Feeling pretty good right now although I need to make sure that constipation stays away as that can also cause the nausea. I really hate nausea!

Hoping everyone is doing only good things.

Live n hugs, Chrissy

Thank you girls for updates. Sorry to hear the cancer is aggressive Trisha. Let’s hope the treatment gives you relief and time. Glad things are well for you Chrissy. I have been lucky again with clear PET so we decided to stop the chemo. Onward with herceptin and perjeta. Hope everyone is keeping warm with winter upon us and coping as well possible with COVID rules

Thank you for the update, sorry the cancer is so aggressive Trish, so hard to understand this crazy disease.
It’s wonderful you have bounced back so well Chrissy.

Sending everyone good wishes with their treatment which must be hard with COVID social distancing and the extra precautions.
