I've beeen diagnosed with Inflammatory Breast Cancer which I understand is quite rare. My Oncologist says Chemo twice a month for a year. He also said that if I missed a treatment, my body would go into shock and I'd die. Has anyone ever heard of Chemo for a year? And dying of shock if you miss a treatment? I'm getting ready to move from San Diego back up to Los Angeles to be with family. I hope I get an oncologist that is not so grim. I start Chemo Monday. Friday I'm having the "port" put in. I'm also a triple negative. This doctor made it seem as though if I made it to 9 months, I'd be lucky. Input would be appreciated. Thank you.
