Hi Joannas. Your mum’s treatment sounds right. 3 rounds of ec, one every three weeks, followed by 3 rounds of t. Everyone’s treatment is tailored to them and determined by their oncologist and the procedures in their health authority. For info, I also have TNBC and had three rounds of fec followed by three of t, so very similar. Hope that helps. Kx
I hope you are well today. I would say to join the chemo February starters. I’m sure most people will respond. I don’t think it’s easy to navigate around the forums, plus sometimes the robot deletes your message 🙈
I can’t see your previous post, but I am having 6 rounds of chemotherapy too over 6 months. I’m going to see if I can cut and paste the other feed to you too xx
Hi. Just wondered if it’s usual to not get replies? Posted a couple of threads in the last month and kind of (wrongly or rightly) expected the forum to be busier with at least a few contributions?
Hi lovely ladies.
My Mum is starting chemo this week for aggressive triple negative breast cancer that is also in her lymph. I am going with her for her first session and staying a couple of days to see how she goes but am a bit concerned because she says she is only having 6 rounds 3 weeks apart via infusion whereas a lot of other people seem to be describing much more complicated regimes. This is chemo pre surgery and I seem to remember the nurse wrote it down as ec9 which I presume is epirubicin cyclophosphamide, od - don’t know what this is and docetaxel x 3. Could anyone explain how the 9 and 3 fit in with the 6 rounds over 18 weeks? It looks like Mum is going to have a total of 4 drugs but unsure if these will be given all together or different combinations - can anyone help? X
