I lost my hair after 2nd treatment of chemo (Adriamycin / cyclophosphamide)


Wed, Mar 13 6:46am · What Is, Or Was, Your Chemo Plan? in Breast Cancer

Everyone's plan is different, I just finished chemo and start radiation next week. I had same AC amount, every other week for 4 treatments. The dr delayed the 4th treatment of AC by a week because of fatigue. Then I had 12 weeks of Taxol. I had minimum side effects. Some nausea, but medications helped. Biggest problem was fatigue, I just learned to listen to by body and when tired, I took it easy and rested.

On emotion side, the isolation was hard. I wanted to make sure I did not catch a cold or flu during treatment, so limited amount time I was exposed to people. I still went to grocery store, and did few things, but avoided crowds. It worked, this is first winter I did not have a cold or cough.

Good luck

Thu, Feb 28 5:18am · Internal carotid artery aneurysm in Stroke & Cerebrovascular Diseases

@tanyabray41 , thanks for asking.

I am doing good. My neurosurgeon repeated a CT 6 months after initial diagnosis and there was no change. So will repeat CT scan in another year. After first diagnosis, I was very nervous knowing it was there, but as time goes by I am less worried. I also talked to my primary provider about and he agrees with neurosurgeon that I am at low risk and it just needs to be monitored on regular bases.

I have no family history of aneurysms. Do they know what caused your aneurysm? I have no idea what caused mine or how long it has been there. Dr asked about previous car accidents, etc…, but I can not remember any trauma that might of caused.


Tue, Feb 19 5:54am · After Breast Cancer treatment, what next? in Breast Cancer

I am wondering what type of follow-up care is done after you have finished your breast cancer treatment?

I am looking forward to spring and being does with treatments but anxious about what happens next. I am sure this varies depending on your type of cancer and what clinic you are receiving your treatment at. I have ER/PR+ , HER- breast cancer with 2 positive lymph nodes. I had a lumpectomy and the two lymph nodes removed in Sept 2018 and have one chemo treatment left and then I will start radiation at Mayo Rochester.

I will ask these questions to oncologist on next visit, but would like to know what post treatment care people have received so I can ask right questions.

Some of questions I have are?

– Do your continue to see your oncologist after treatment is done or does you primary care physician take care of treating side effects and answer questions once done with treatment?

– If I decide to take hormone therapy after treatment, does oncologist or primary care doctor monitor?

– How often do you have mammograms? Do you just get screening mammograms or does your doctor order other screening tests?

– Are there tests that they run to make sure cancer has not spread to other parts of your body or additional lymph nodes?

Thanks for your input

Is there any plans to do a similar symposium at other Mayo locations?

I was in a study for hormone suppression prior to surgery that measured Ki67. What is Ki67 and is it just a measurement in breast cancer or also in other cancer?
