I am hoping that one of you will be a supportive friend and guide for me. I am so scared as I was diagnosed 3 weeks ago with breast cancer. Good news is I already had a double mastectomy, clear nodes stage 1 and am feeling sore but rather well.
I have been to one consult with an oncologist last night. I thought I was an intelliegent woman who has now learned that I am actually rather ignorant as I have no idea what this all means.
He is recommending 12 weeks of taxatier and cytoxin along with 52 weeks of herceptin. He is making it seem like I can work and love fairly normally through this with just side effects from the two chemo drugs a few days after treatment. He even said Id be ok to travel to MEXICO on a ore planned trip during treatment. Is he trying to make me feel better or can this actually be true?
