How did u do on Ac/Taxol chemo regimen

I actually had a pretty easy time with AC. I cold capped so I kept most of my hair through AC. I didn't have a lot of the side effects you hear about. Taxol was a little more difficult. I did 12 rounds. did lose lots of hair and had bad rashes that the doctor didn't seem to be able to clear. I also had a lot of emotional issues with great sadness on day 3 of it. Radiation was my big bugaboo. I burned and was exhausted and was very glad when I finished. I had surgery 1st as my doctor didn't see any benefit from doing chemo first in my case, I have been on blockers (anestrazole ) for over a year and I just had my checkup and she said everything looked ok except calcium was high.. Running another test next week. I feel really grateful to be alive and grateful to this group for keeping my spirits up a lot of the time with positive stories and friendly welcomes. I will be officially NED in March for 2 years but I never get cocky. I have been having lots of worries healthwise in the last couple of weeks even though doctor said I was okay. I still have a dull ache in my cancer side upper arm and random pains in my legs. Anyone else have any thing like that where they just worry that it is back. Sending you all love, support and thanks for being here when I needed you.

Hello everyone!

Well, here I am at 5 years out today. How I have hoped and longed to be able to write those words!!

I remember reading over the postings in these "Years Out" threads and finding hope when I was feeling extremely low. May this posting in turn offer some hope to others on the path.

Following a diagnosis at age 44 that shocked me to the core, with news that just seemed to keep getting worse and worse there for a while and 15 months of throwing everything but the kitchen sink at this illness, I am now doing very well. It's been a long road. My kids were 10 and 13 back then, and I am immensely grateful to witness them growing up.

I am thankful for every single day. :)

Wishing you all health and happiness--

Dear everyone,

This month it's five years since I finished treatment after a scary breast cancer diagnosis with many involved lymph nodes. I was only 30 when I received the cancer verdict. Since then many things have happened: I got married, finished my PhD and welcomed a son born through surrogacy. I know that nothing is guaranteed and I hope for many years more. I wish all you wonderful people good luck in your journeys.

Warm wishes

Like everyone before me here, I prayed that one day I'd get to come here five years later and say "I'm here!".

I was 47 when I was diagnosed, and my children were 6 and 9. I was absolutely terrified that I wouldn't be here to raise them.

It was during my darkest days when I came to this site and this thread in particular to desperately seek hope. I found it on this thread and am so grateful to the wonderful comrades who wrote.

I was told early on by a friend that there would be many gifts along the way through this journey, and it's true. You will find people to be caring and compassionate and they'll want to help you as much as possible. Surround yourself with whatever support system you have and lean into that. And no matter how you cope with this shocking and traumatic diagnosis, it's 'ok'. You don't have to use the word 'warrior' or 'girl power'. Just be gentle on yourself. This is as much of hit to your mind as it is to your body.

I live with uncertainty like everyone else here, but I'm very thankful to be here and to be really living my life. I've been to Europe twice, I opened an art studio, my kids are now almost 12 and almost 15, we are looking at renovating our house....I made a friend through this site who shares my name, a similar diagnosis and a similar family make up. We are still in touch now and that is one special gift too.

You can do this and you will smile again. And then you will come back here in 5 years and share your post.

Here's praying for continued health for all of us here. xoxo

6 years and counting!

6 years ago I was just starting chemo. I don't get on this site as much as I did back then, but I wanted to come back and leave a positive post. I know I looked for all the encouragement I could find back when I was in the midst of the hard stuff!

I still take hormonal therapy, and that's no picnic. Lol. But I'm happy to be alive and Still Kickin'!

Hi everyone! This September will be eight years out since diagnosis and surgery, followed by chemo, radiation, and herceptin. At the time, I did not know how I'd get through it all, but here I am still moving along. I did have one blip with a "new" breast cancer diagnosis in my unaffected breast last June 3. Fortunately, if that word can even apply to a BC diagnosis, it was caught early, was very small, and had no positive nodes. I had a mastectomy to be (hopefully) done with it, reconstruction, and switched from Tamoxifen to Letrozole. The new BC was still estrogen positive, The Letrozole has been a harder adjustment than was Tamoxifen. Definitely having more achiness from it, and I've had to begin Prolia because it was already affecting my bone density after only six months. But ... I'm still here!

Keep fighting, friends!

I want to add another positive note... I am 11 years out from diagnosis, surgery, chemo, radiation. And just finished my 10 years with letrozole! Living life to the fullest. I was pretty sure life was over when I was first diagnosed with Stage IIIA, but no. It was just a bump in the road and a little bit of a "wake up call" to slow down for a while and reorder my life. I don't get on this sight much anymore, but do miss the many friends I made along the way. Onward!

I never knew this one existed! I've been going to the ten year board for encouragement. It's been 7 years for me in December and I thought when I was diagnosed in March of 2014, that I wouldn't see Christmas. My BS said "You're not getting out of buying Christmas presents!" All my doctors were so encouraging, and that is important when you start on this journey.

Added: I can't figure out how to edit my signature - I had 2 nodes with full involvement and 2 with "specs". So stage IIIA

I haven't thought much about cancer in the last years since I had a horrible time with the dose dense regime and just want to forget. However, I've had the ridiculous pain in my right arm and feeling tired beyond measure. Was there any sign that made you wonder if you should check out a possible remission or mets. I know this is a hopeful thread but I'm a bit nervous.

I had breast cancer in both breasts. Initially in the right breast IDC Triple negative with surgery and 30 rounds of radiation. Two years later, left breast ER+ mastectomy, chemo and another 30 rounds of radiation. No hormonal therapy since it made me very sick. I ended up in oncology ICU for eight days since I had no neutrophils, zero after my second dose dense infusion. I was happy to survive those days and quite frankly amazed I'm still here after almost 8 years. I recently moved from Utah to South Carolina and I'm waiting for my new insurance cards before locating a new oncologist. I'm attributing my coughing mucus to the very high dew point in SC summer and bone pain to sleeping on an air mattress waiting for my furniture and personal items from the move. I'm no spring chicken (63) so aches and pains may be just part of aging. I will definitely check things out. I understand no one really can advice other than hang in and go find out. Thanks, y’all have a blessed day
