I have since had a recurrence of my breast cancer in the sentinel lymph node. My surgeon thought the chemo was so effective that she couldn't find it. They told me it is now a stage 3. I had surgery to remove the lymph nodes in my left arm. Then, more chemo followed by radiation.
I thought I was doing pretty good until I ended up in the hospital twice while on AC chemo. Now I find myself sad and even tearful at times. The doctor took me off the AC chemo for 3 weeks and now I am on Taxol weekly for 10 weeks. Is it unusual to feel sad about the whole thing?

@margaret2, you are not alone in experience profound sadness and depression with the news of recurrence. It is real and you can seek help from your cancer center. I also encourage to talk about here on Connect. You may wish to join this discussion:
