← Return to Triple Negative Breast Cancer: What treatments are you having?

Comment receiving replies

Hello everyone
I was diagnosed 3/15/2023 with Stage 1a TicNo Tnbc local reoccurrence after 5 1/2 year of being cancer free. It came back in the same area of the lumpectomy in 2017 and a 1.7 cm behind the nipple. Had a PETSCAN/CT all came back negative except in the breast. Also had a MRI with contrast. My treatment consists of Carboplatin, Abraxine and Keytruda, 4 cycles every 21 days with surgery following all treatments. I believe I will have one more cycle after surgery to clear up any remaining traces in the system. The most frightening part of this whole thing is that there is a shortage of Carboplatin everywhere! My doctor called my on 4/11 and said they may not have it for my treatment on 4/14 but name was first on the list. When I arrived for my treatment they were able to get it for me but could not guarantee they would have it for my next treatment. I am halfway through my treatments with no solution to what will happen next. This is very frustrating but I am going to remain positive! Hopes this helps
Take care.

I read your comment re: TNBC. I, too, have metastatic triple negative breast cancer. I received Keytruda every 21 days. I thought I would have a chemo treatment too; not thus far. I will pray for you & if you would like to keep in touch, I would like this too.

I am 3 1/2 years out from completing treatment for TNBC (chemo, lumpectomy, radiation). Wondering how your recurrence was detected. We’re you suspicious? I wish I didn’t worry, but since I feel lumps and have tenderness, I do!

I am sorry you are dealing with this. No one wants to go through it once, let alone a second time.

Best wishes to,you, Cindy
