      Ask God to communicate that He's with you in this. Sometimes it's hard for us to hear, especially if we are scared. But I know he does speak! Hugs!

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): I'm on my 2nd round of chemo which makes me a little nauseated after about 4 to 5 days & lasts about 3 days! The white blood cell shot the following day "neulasta" is what really hurts for about 3 days! It feels like someone has beaten me w/ a bat all over my body! :(

      I had the same experience. Take some claritan....It did help with body aches but I drank tons of water to not let it dry me out too much. I also tried to ignore the pain. Tried to not think of pain. Stay mentally strong as much as you can to get through the tougher days. I also bit___ed a lot too!!! Lol that helps too!! Let it out sista!!

    I have triple negative bc stage II & in one lymph node. Waiting for the Doc.call, but wondering how many treatments and how severe they are?

      I had triple negative, stage 3, in lymph nodes. My tumor was very large, so the first step was chemo to shrink everything down. After 4 months of aggressive chemo, I had a bilateral mastectomy, and 5 weeks of daily radiation. My next stop (coming up), will be reconstruction. Hang in there....it will be ok.
