Everyone mentions A/C and I wonder which chemo drugs A/C refers to? maybe adriamycin and Cyclophosphamid?? aha? let me know!
I am also ER,PR-, Her2+ and my first chemo drugs were Doxorobicin and cyclophosphamid(Endoxan) followed by 5 injections of neupogen daily.

Dx 50 days ago. 44 years old, tumors in both breasts. tumor in the left breast 5 cm with no invasion to lymph nodes and the right breast 3 cm with invasion to lymph nodes. both tumors were removed and patology was IDC, grade III. bone scan was clear. also CT scan and MRI showed no cancer in liver, ovaries, and other productive organs. chest X-ray showed no metastasis to the lung. but didn't do lung-CT.
tumors showed to be ER-, PR- and Her2++
2 docs recommanded breast conserving, but 3 others suggested me not to risk and have bilateral mastectomy.I did mastectomy a month ago. 3 lymph nodes were involved in the right side. I did my chemo 11 days ago and i am feeling very well now! first round of chemo was piece of cake! thanks to GOD, side effects was not that bad. I hope all side effects went to cancerous cells!:p for me, just a little bit nausea for 3 days and am still a lil tired. but have to eat carefully and have to walk after i eat, so digestion is better. my doc asked me not to sleep or lye down for an hour after I eat.
will have my next chemo 10 days from now.

Hello ladies,

I've mostly been hanging out in the 'Chemo' room because there is a whole group of us who started in March and are supporting one another....ChemoSabe Cruise!

I am triple neg, Stage II, Grade III IDC with no nodes undergoing dose dense A/C +T followed by rads. Oh yeah - had a lumpectomy on 2/20/07. Dx on 2/7/07.

There is also a room for Triple Negs I believe. I am worried about recurrence - I am 51. I'm not the healthiest lifestyle bunny on the block - drank vodka tonics, ate junk food...of course...all this has stopped applesauce and rice mostly. Have only had one tx so far and have diarrhea for 5 days...ugh.

I've continued to work - need to $$ wise (single and no savings).

Sending my love and gentle hugs to you all.


Thank you, all of you, for being there for me and for one another. Did any of you have a PICC line? I have one and get 'funny' feelings in my chest sometimes..
lumpectomy/dose dense AC &T/35 rads/7 boosts...treatment completed 8/31/07...reconstruction surgery 5/14/09 and 9/8/10! Dx 2/7/2007, IDC, 1cm, Stage II, Grade 3, 0/3 nodes, ER-/PR-, HER2-

Hello ladies...... Can anyone explain why some people get Taxol instead of Taxotere? I'm currently going on my 5th treatement of Taxotere/Adrimycin/Cytoxan. (Every 3 weeks for a total of 6 treatments). Yup, 2 more to go and man I am counting down! They did not break up my treamtment. I get everything at once... Assuming this is considered dense dose?

DX 11/06 IDC/DCIS Stg 1, grd 3, er/pr neg, HER2 neg
(Triple negative). Lymphovascular/venous invasion present.
All lymph nodes negative - Age 45

My Oncologists opinion was that Taxotere has less side effects than its "cousin" Taxol.Well,I ended up with neuropathy in my legs so bad that I still have to use a cane sometimes and I finished chemo in November.I read an article in JAMA touting Taxotere as "the new gold standard for node positive breast cancer".I had 4 DD treatments and I really thought I would die before I finished it.I am not trying to scare anyone,everyone reacts differently.Congrats on being near the finish line but when I finished my neuropathy stayed.
