Yes, I NEED Chemo. Big time.
My chances of getting Stage IV breast cancer (for which there is no cure) are 50% without it. The cancer drug Tamoxifen (which I will be on for 5 years) and chemo will bring my chances of no recurrence to 85-90%. I was hoping for 100%, but I'm greedy.
Pathology showed that I have Grade 3 breast cancer (this is an upgrade from the biopsy) with a score of 8 out of 9. Most aggressive, fastest growing cancer.
Port will be put in on August 10, first chemo August 11.
Yes, I'll lose my hair. Yes, I'll be on anti-nausea pills around the clock. Yes, I'm going to be exhausted.
I tried to look at hats today but I just couldn't do it.
