Survivor since 2012
You've taken the first step toward the rest of your life. I know how scary and uncertain it is. I get my port OUT tomorrow! I finished 5 months (6 rounds) of chemo on March 15 and, except for several years of Aromasin, I'm done with treatment.
Just know this will not last forever. You're going to feel pretty crappy for a while, but if your doctors are like mine they absolutely do not want you to suffer from side effects. you should be able to get medication for just about anything and, if you do, take the medication as soon as you feel something coming on. Stay on top of it. Don't push yourself, even if you feel half way decent between treatments. Be kind to yourself and, most importantly, take all offers of help. You'll find your friends and family will be falling all over themselves to do anything to help. Take them up on it.
You'll get through this, sista. Just hang in and stick with this blog for lots of advice from lots of strong women!
