Hi, I've just joined this wonderful group. I was diagnosed w/triple negative breast cancer on 3/2011. I completed my chemotherapy in 12/2011. Luckily I didn't have the nausea or vomitting many do. Main problems were leg pains which linger today, however, not close to how they were. I had my radiation done in the month of Feb - March this year. In mid April I had my CT Scans and all came out negative. I'd say about 5 days ago I began feeling like pin needle pricks in the middle of my chest. So bout 3 days ago I've been having some pain on my right breast which is where I did have a lumpectomy. Oh it is so tender to the touch at this time and feel a lump. This type of cancer is aggressive and studies show survival is aboout 5 years. Would like to know if any of you pink sisters are experiencing this Triple Negative Breast Cancer and how you are doing? I'm trying to stay positive cause I've got 3 grand babies whom I do want to enjoy more of. My onco appt isn't until the 12th and wow seems like eternity at this time.
