I get the Neupogen shots at a clinic in the Cancer center. Treatment and doctor's appointments are all close together.

I found out that I was very anemic and I think that was part of the problem causing me to be so sad. I had to skip one dose of Taxol but did have it this week. I am scheduled for a Neupogen shot to try to decrease the chance of anemia. Chemo makes me feel nauseated and generally bad but I do feel better than I was.
Thank you for your response.
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?
I am curious if anyone else has had a gynecological neuroendocrine tumor. I had 2 separate neuroendocrine cancers. One was stage 3 ovarian with involvement in the omentum.
The other was a stage 2 breast cancer.
The information on this is almost impossible to find
Maybe someone else has had experience.

I am sure there are groups around but I don't know how to find them.
I will need to be more proactive. Thank you for responding.

My breast cancer came back 4 months after completing my first chemo. I felt hurt like I was punched in the gut! My recurrent breast cancer was in the sentinal lymph node site. I had surgery to remove the lymph nodes on my left arm. I am back on chemo with 5 months of chemo followed by radiation.
My doctor says it is stage 3. It is crazy how I cling to that! Back to work full time and have had a really hard time. I feel sick all the time. I am 65 and thought I was healthy 14 months ago.
I don't have family close by and most of the people I thought were friends don't call. I thank God for the couple who do call.
