Thank you @martid!
Nausea really is one of my biggest fears, so I’m glad to hear there’s options for avoiding it. How are you feeling and doing with your treatment?

Hello Colleen!
Thank you for responding and for introducing me to others on the group. I have always been an optimistic person, and this situation warrants no exception. I will be starting With Adriamycon & Cytoxan followed by Taxotere, Herceptin & Perjeta. I already have 1 wig & am getting. Another made, just being as proactive as I can be. I will check out the breast cancer group also. I really appreciate the info.

Hello, my name is Sheena and I was recently (2 weeks ago) diagnosed with Stage II B ER/PR/HER 2 positive breast cancer. PET scan shows that is confined to 1 breast & a few axillary lymph nodes and I had/have absolutely zero constitutional symptoms. Found a hard lump that was rapidly growing & some localized skin changes which prompted me going in to my Doctor. I am exceedingly optimistic about my prognosis, as is my entire treatment team, and I am here to hopefully gather any advice or insight on things I can do for myself to minimize the effects of chemo, which I start on Tuesday. I wasenvisioning projectile vomiting, being so fatigued I can barely stand, hair falling out, etc but my Oncologist assures me that it won’t be quite as dramatic as it is in my head. Any chemo veterans care to shake their stories with an amateur? Things you experienced & what I should brace myself for? Thanks in advance!
