    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I was diagnosed on April 26, 2012 and began chemotherapy May 10, 2012 with Taxotere, Carboplatin, and Herceptin, and Neulasta on May 11th. I'm just starting so my side effects are vague right now and I'm experiencing malaise more than anything else.

    Easy to Do: Neutral/NA

    Decision Point

    There was no decision to make. Every decision was made for us, and my husband and I agreed. My mammogram isn't due until June but I felt a lump in March and called my doctor. I went from mammogram to ultrasound to biopsy and needle aspiration in 24 hours and to diagnosis in 48. I have the best team in the world. God knew I had cancer and put in my heart to start a blog. I'm telling my story one day at a time at http://onemeasureoffaith.com
