      How are you doing? I had stage 2b triple neg. breast cancer in 2009. I am now cancer free after chemo, lumpectomy, and radiation. Had to have a mast. in 2010, cancer came back and they didn't want to mess around. Have been cancer free for over a year and a half. Feeling better all the time, don't be scared, you can do this. Stay positive!

      Hi! I had TNBC - diagnosed 1 year ago. I had 2 lumpectomies, chemo and radiation finishing in March, 2012. It was difficult to say the least, but I made it. Other than neuropathy, I'm feeling pretty good. My hair has grown back and I feel more "normal" - is there such a thing? There are alot more of us TNs out there than you think - I've been very surprised how many. Keep in touch.

      I know that you posted this 7 months ago, which is about the same time I was dx with tnbc. Not sure what stage, won't know for sure till after surgery. Went through 16 weeks of chemo, now waiting for surgery, double masectomy with reconstruction, and followed by radiation. First, we have to take care of my ovaries, which were noticed to have cysts on them. Don't think they are cancer, but want to make sure. I'm having that surgery on tue the 26th.
      I was scared, and have had moments along the way. Just keep thinking that this is just a bump in the road and you can't let it control your life. I've continued with my normal "mom" duties, continued with my full time job, only missing a couple extra days on chemo weeks, leader of 4h group, taking care of animals on our small farm, carry on with life. It's not going to stop for me, so why should I stop for it? Sure I get tired, and I have stepped it back a few notches as I still get tired easy, but I have to keep going.
      I hope things have gotten bearable for you. Take it one day at a time and just keep lovin yourself. I'm glad to know that there are more of "our kind" out there. Take care and please keep in touch.
