Oh well - the start of CMF chemo today 🙄 Hopefully this will do the trick. Already had TC, then AC now CMF. I also start radiotherapy in my 2nd session of CMF. Exhausted will be an understatement. But, on the positive side - It's all a means to an end of cancer - Please God. Wishing all you lovely ladies on here all a lovely, healthier and happy day. Lainey xxx

  • Hi

    I had 6 sessions of cmf+ it was no bother at all really. Granted I didn't have any other chemo before this so was easier to deal with. However I did have a baby 3 weeks before starting so I was a bit weak- it was still ok. I believe it's the less harsh chemo of the lot.

    I finished in January+ my bloods are back normal again, my menstrual cycle returned and is very regular so far. My hair thinned a lot but I didn't lose it+ it's starting to grow back a lot now.

    Best of all-it worked. By the time I had surgery my tumour had gone from 3cms to less than half centimetre. 7 weeks post mastectomy now+ they got all cancer, no radiotherapy needed.

    Just wanted to give a positive story- I hope it helps make it a bit less daunting.
