Hello Everyone. I am a Mom who has a one-year-old boy and live together with my husband. Here is my history of TNBC.
Oct.2014 I was a pregnant woman and felt some lump in my left breast, it was small and no pain. Apr. 2015 I gave birth to my first baby boy. But I felt much difficulty in breastfeeding although the hospital required me to do breastfeeding. May 2015 I asked a nurse that I have a lump in my left breast, but the nurse told me that it would be just breast inflammation. "Massage well and cool down by a wet towel," the nurse said, and just I followed it. Nov.2015 Two more tumors came out in my lef armpit, but still I thought it would be breast inflammation. Mar.2016 My breast was swollen and I really felt breast pain, so I finally decided to see my primary doctor. "It would be breast inflammation, surgery may be needed," the doctor said. After visiting breast care center, the doctor diagnosed me as TNBC(triple negative breast cancer) stage IV. Apr.2016 I started Chemotherapy, inserting mediport in my right breast. May.2016 Hair loss, low white blood count happened. July 2016 Chemo worked well, and my cancer stage improved to stage III. Oct 2016 1.6 cm of tumore was found in my right lobe of the liver. My cancer stage came back to STAVE IV again. I started Chemo again.
