Hi Ladies.  First post and I've already created a new topic - been learning a tremendous amount from this site since the day after my diagnosis.  I have looked at so many sites and resources and have to say this community is so inspiring and supportive - thank you all!  

4 weeks post-mastectomy and reconstruction today, and I am starting chemo on March 1st. Been reading the topics for January and February starters, and so much has been helpful.  Just wanted to open this up for discussion. Scared and apprehensive, but also eager to get "phase 2" underway.

Does anyone experience neuropathy? I don't think I have it but my feet feel like in certain positions they lose circulation faster. Is that what it is? But it goes away when I move... Or reposition.

Just seems to be more noticeable I guess. So... just curious about everyone else.

Hi ladies,

Day 3 post round 3 (3 of8). Not bad generally. Just tired. Had great news from my onco this week. My one lymph node had totally disappeared and he figures that the tumour has now shrunk 30%... That's after 2 treatments. Feels good after going through all of this (although,again not that bad) it's working. I am a candidate for lumpectomy. Here is my question to you guys... I am waiting for my genetic testing, has anyone done that yet and know how they do it, how long it takes to get the results? I don't want to get excited about a lumpectomy yet. Hope you are all doing well! The haircuts look awesome :-)

Hope everyone has a great week.. gearing up for my treatment on Thursday! My kids so lovingly shared their colds with me so I have been dealing with that the past few days.. hopefully all will be fine by Thursday.

Tlow990 My clinic did the genetic testing through a 3rd party called Invitae and it took almost 4 weeks to get the results.

May07 Have you had your "big" shed yet? I swear I went from only losing 10% to probably 50% now between weeks 3 and 4. I washed this morning and it seems to have slowed way down, but I'm hoping that was the last of the major shedding and the caps continue to work. My husband still says he can't tell the difference, but it feels so much thinner to me.

I am Day 12 past Cycle 2 and really feeling pretty good today, I can really feel a rebound in my energy levels this morning. I am still having major issues with the Big D and I'm so tired of dealing with it. I tried to take a break from the Immodium yesterday while I was home because it seems to be driving my heart rate up, but I had to give in last night and take a couple doses to get things under control again.

I'm looking forward to a little weekend getaway with the kids this weekend and hoping I continue to feel good. My baby girl is turning 7 next week so we will be celebrating her with lots of unicorns :)

May, Hapa,

My onco nurse that has been helping me with my caps told me the first shed is the worst and I really hope she's right or I too will have nothing left. I would say I started shedding around day 18 and it was a lot every day for about 10 days and now it has slowed down a lot. Most of mine seems to coming from around my ears and underneath sort of all over. I haven't noticed any bald spots yet on top.

I am having 6 rounds of TCHP, but it seems like a lot of people are only having 4. I guess it's because my tumor is big.

Re: hair loss, my onco nurse said thinning should taper off over the 6 months of treatment I'm scheduled for. I've done 2 rounds of CMF which is supposed to have hair thinning but not total loss. Feels noticeably thinner to me already but they say other people can't tell, which may be true.The first round I had a very tingly scalp on day 3 or 4, and then it started. I haven't had that yet, I'm at day 3. Seems like some SEs might be a little different each time?

Sidalee - it seems like we're on the same treatment plan. Also using dignicap.

Bec-Ky - Neuropathy is the worst. I'm fearful that it will be permenant, especially since mine showed up after the very first infusion. My nurse at Mayo said to try B6 and B12 for neuropathy. I didn't get any dosing info but I'll ask when I see her Wednesday. You should ask your onc about it.

I'm happy to report that after a 2 mile run, a night in compression socks, and sleeping with my feet on pillows, my ankles have reappeared!. Still wearing the compression socks.

I had lots of anxiety this weekend for some reason. My BP was even up (to ~130, but that's high for me). I think I need to leave work early and go for a trail run this evening. I'd been just running in my neighborhood after dark to avoid the sun but that isn't cutting it.

After researching this site... For neuropathy...i have come to this final list that most say is generally accepted and recommended. Now, did I research for a long time? No... But I did read quite a bit and here's my final plan. I will of course ask my onc on Wednesday.. But im pretty sure I'll take it anyways... 😉


I have just placed an Amazon order for :

B-12 (methylcolbalmin form)

Vitamin E

Fish oil (this one was the questionable one)

Powdered l-glutamine
