I'm stage IIIB - 4thgeneration

Oh No Associated with Inflammatory Breast Cancer. Posted on October 23, 2011 View this journey (6 Experiences)

Not too happy to hear that I'm stage IIIB, but I won't let that inhibit me from BELIEVING that I can heal from this! I have a rare type of cancer; Inflammatory Breast Cancer. I'm told it's the most lethal type and least known. But hey, I am strong and I have amazing support, so I believe in ME!

    Howdy! glad to hear your cancer is contained in just your breast like mine. We absolutely will fight this. it is an ugly breast cancer and rare, but we can be breast friends and will fight it together. I'm thinking about asking for the port too because on Friday they had to stick me 5 times to get the vein. darn

    Hey you! Thanks, I'm happy that it is contained, too! And you should definitely ask for a port. I wonder why they didn't suggest one in the first place? Your veins can be damaged over time and all that sticking. Let's save them and ask for a port!!! I love the idea of being breast friends and fighting this together! : ) That made me smile. You are beautiful and strong and you are a FIGHTER!! How long have you been having chemo?

    I have had one chemo treatment and that was on Oct 10th. my next one will be on the 31st. since i am iron deficient they also gave me a big bag of iron on the last 2 Fridays The 3rd and 4th day after the chemo was hardest of all. Ive been feeling great all this week tho. My hair started falling out on sat and sun so last night I had my son in law buzz it all off. I like your picture!

    Wow, you are brave to buzz off all of your hair, but I love that! I'm considering cutting it now, since I will be starting chemo soon. I hate to lose it but I know it will come back and hey, the reason for the loss outweighs the need for the hair! Thanks about the picture. It's a little old, but I look the same! Let's keep in touch and I'll let you know when my first day of chemo is. HUGS!!!!
