Hi everyone! New to this site. I was happy to read some much needed info. I was Diagnosed in august 2010 with er/pr positive her - breast cancer. I found the lump on my own. In October I had a bilateral mastectomy and had 6 lymph nodes removed. I lymph node had a minuscule cancer cell in it. I had begun my reconstruction at that time also with the breast expanders. I had the oncotype test done which showed that I had a higher chance of reoccurence so I began the ac combol the week of Christmas. I was nauseated and continue to have horrible headaches. This we'd will be the last of the 4 ac treatments thank goodness but then I will begin the 12 weeks of taxol. I noticed with each ac it takes longer for me to feel better. Im concerned about the taxol because the ac has been terrible. I didn't see anything mentioned if anyone had problems with getting their monthly more often or any hemroid issues? I have a great husband who has been a great support but a lot of my family have not been there to help a lot for some reason. I have three children who range from 18-5. I'm glad to find this site!
