Will need the power of the KT again

I've seen it work over the years and it helped the last time I received test results.

Still no chemo arranged but I did see the visiting oncologist here and she's totally disagreeing with the Lahey oncologist. She said she's better than Lahey.

So it seems as if I have a very aggressive, rare cancer and she's taking it as Triple Negative. Found this out on Friday. Before chemo can start I'll have to find out if and where it's spread in the body. This can determine if I have months or years left. She is putting me on a drug regime that is used in trials for people with Triple Negative.

On Wednesday morning I'll be having the CT and bone scans, which I've been dreading. If you don't mind keeping me in your thoughts until I receive the results.

Right now I'm beyond my breaking point. I dread weekdays and breathe a sigh of relief when 5:00pm comes because I know I won't be getting any more phone calls.

Hopefully I'll relax some when treatment starts.

Thank you again for supporting me and listening to the whining. Feel like I'm living in a nightmare.

You call it whining, but I call it a cry for help. I don't think I could do nearly as well as you have been. You have my prayers for a totally successful outcome.

I'm not terribly regular here at the KT but have been following your saga with particular interest since I've had cancer a couple times myself. And I have a new scare with an ovarian mass that may or may not be malignant - will find out during surgery tomorrow. So I have some idea how terrifying it is to be in that stage where you're trying to understand what you're dealing with and what you will have to do.

My SIL has had breast cancer and I think I've heard her mention that triple negative. I didn't know what it is so I did a little reading. It sounds like there is a lot of research and studies being done for this with good results. It also said because there is so much new information it's not unusual for oncologists to have different opinions on what's best - as you have experienced.

Everyone's case is different of course but I have a friend who was diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer about five years ago. I just saw her last weekend and she looks and feels great. Her disease will not be cured but it is in control and she is fully enjoying life.

If at all possible try to think positive even though it's a terribly frightening time. It sounds like there are many possibilities for treatment for what you have and you may have good times ahead once you get through these most difficult times

Sorry hear, but thinking positive with hugs and special thoughts!

(((Zeetera))) I hope you can feel our support!


 o
RE: Will need the power of the KT again

Triple negative actually DOES have a good side: That is the ONE type of breast cancer that is considered CURED after 5 years of no recurrence.

Good luck - hope you get your treatments straightened out. In my opinion, you'd be best served by choosing ONE doctor/treatment facility and going with that - no looking back. Otherwise, you will drive yourself crazy with the "what if" scenarios running through your head.


 o
RE: Will need the power of the KT again

Cry and whine all you like. And when you have done that, do it again. Then, try to relax. ((((HUGS))))

You are in my thoughts.

This is a very scary situation for with mountains of stress attached to it. Anxiety must be all over you right now. I'm so proud of you for opening up and sharing. I tend to shut down but you're teaching me a great lesson and I'm so impressed with the outpouring of loving concern plus the prayers. Let's pound the heavens with our prayers.
