In July I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I have a 10x6 xcm tuner and it has been confirmed in one lymph node. The cells have estrogen and progesterone receptors and is also HER2 poitive. I started 8 weeks of treatment on August 15th. Taxotere and carboplatin once every three weeks and Herceptin every week. My hair fell out a week after my first treatment so it must be working. But I had me second cycle of chemo Wednesday September 7th and by last night is was pretty sure I was going to die. I wasnt just weak and tired like last time, I was faint, couldn't catch my breath, heart palpitations, clammy,shivering, slightly disoriented and shaking. I understand that chemo has a cumulative effect and that side effects will get progressively worse with each treatment. I can't handle anything worse! Sound familiar to anyone? Any help is appreciated.
