Hi girls -
I am very new here and have found the survey very interesting.  I am amazed at the ages of everyone here - I hope it's okay if I add another dimension to the survey that I have oftened wondered about in my own diagnosis.  I am a psychotherapist and noticed in reading the responses how many of us were on antidepressants when diagnosed.  Since the ages many of us are when we were diagnosed would put us in the catagory of married with small children, that being an unusually stressful time of life, I wondered if (as in my own life) there were marital probs, anger and resentment, depression, or any other psychological traumas that may have been present two or so years prior to diagnosis.  All of those were definately present for me, two young children, marital tension and stress, angry grudges being held inside of me towards family members, ect...
Since I cannot take anything for my trip neg state, I also along with vitamins, veggies and excercise,  focus a lot on my emotional well-being.  I think anger and resentment suppress the immune system and I try to be very aware of my stress level and my emotional state.  I would be so interested to hear about this from people if they are comfortable sharing this - thank you!
 
One other question, if you took adriamycin are you in menopause or have you developed heart issues?  I am in menopause and do now have heart issues.
Okay - Here's my info -
 
 
1/   How old are you? 42, now 39 at dx.
2/   Where were your born and where have you lived?Born NYC, raised in Bergen Cty NJ, lived in Central Jersey past 10 years.  College in Allentown PA
3/   What is the specific name of your type of cancer other than TN?  75% IDC,25% DCIS , Stage 3, Poor Differential Grade 34 cm tumor, Left Breast, 20 positve nodes of 26
4/   What is your blood type? O-
5/   Are you a drinker or a smoker? Drank and smoked in HS and college.  Smoked a lot of pot in college, nothing since age 20 except for very occasional drinking.
6/   Has anyone else in your family had Any kind of cancer? Yes - On Maternal side: GM died of BC age 80, Aunt Died BC age 70, 2nd Aunt Died of OVarian age 75, she was BRCA1 - her two daughters, one diag BC age 51 - ER+, on Tamoxifan, recurrance after 4 1/2 years, died at age 57 mets to bone, and brain.  Her other daughter, BRCA1 - now in tx for colon cancer.  MY mother - BC 1 year after me, she is Triple Neg as well - she and I are bother BRCA NEG.  Paternal GM - luekemia
7/   How many pregnancies have you had? 3 preg, two live births
8/   What childhood diseases have you had?  Chicken Pox
9/    Did you have any symptons of your breast cancer? I was diagnosed with lupus 6 months prior to my BC diagnosis,  I was feeling exhausted with severe pains in my hands and wrists
10/ How was your cancer first discovered? Had pain, reached over in the shower and found two hard palpaple lumps, one in breast and one in armpit
11/ Have you had a re-occurence in the past 2 years and if so, where did it re-occur? NO - diagnosed 9/10/04 -three years clean this past Sept!!
12/ How often did you have mammograms Before you were diagnosed? Yearly since age 40
13/ Have you ever had a traumatic blow to your body and where was it? Flipped over the handle bars on my bike in 8th grade, broke my wrist
14/ Have you ever had your hormones checked Prior to being diagnosed? No
15/ Before you were diagnosed, what medications were you on? I had started on Synthroid three weeks prior to finding the lumps.  This was because for about 7 yrs I had nodules on my thyroid.  About 7 months before dx I had a biopsy on my thyroid and was still getting over the fear that I had thyroid cancer.  I also was and still am on Ultracet for the pain in my joints that I thought was from the lupus but now think a lot was from the chemo.
16/ Have you been prescribed antibiotics more than once in a year?Probably because the flu season before my then 3 and 6 yr old had strep and every other cold ect that I am sure I did.
1) Have you ever been on birth control? Yes, from 19- 27 ortho-novom, triphasil
2) If you have children, did you breastfeed? For how long? Yes, breastfed 13 months and 10 months
3) Do you have dense breast tissue?YES
4) Have you tested positive for BRCA1/2 negative
5) Exercise and diet? Before BC - poor diet always about 130 after kids about 160, minimal exercise. NOW EXCELLENT Veggie diet, occasional wine not much excercise. Lost all the weight due to chemo making me not want to eat, have been 130 past two years since tx ended.

Welcome Jenn,
 
I was diagnosed a couple of months ago with congestive heart failure and feel like Adriamyacin is to blame but that is just my feelings.  I took it in 03.
 
I'm one of those who was older, 56, the first time I was diagnosed so I didn't go thru menopause but my 39 yr old daughter was diagnosed earlier this year and just finished her treatments.  About a month ago she had a hysterectomy and is having problems with hot flashes.
 
But that doesn't really answer your question.  I do remember about your age I did go thru pre-menopausal experiences.
 
As you mentioned there are alot of younger members that have been diagnosed on our board so hopefully they'll come along soon and answer your question specifically.
 
You might go to the Talk board and start a new topic so they'll be sure and see your question. Smile

Jenn,
I had AC in the spring of 2001. It definitely put me in menopause which I  looked upon as  being a bonus  for going thru treatment.
 
 I have not had any heart problems. Even  at that time they would not do more than 4 rounds because more than that could be detrimental to the heart. I did have a stress test, fairly soon after, which came out perfect. The problem was eventually dx as esophogeal spasms which I had never had prior.

I don't think age, size, grade, stage, childbirth, location or anythings has a thing to do with triple negative hormone breast cancer.  I think it has to do with environment, defective receptors, and the unwilling research given to this odd form of cancer. 
 
If I believed in this poll, I would take the survey, but I've taken zillions of worthless surveys and they accound for nothing.  The fact is, scienctist and physicians are taking the easy way out by using these rediculous polls to avoid the reality of what the possible genetic, environmental, and ineffective treatments to which we are subjected. 
 
I don't think they care.  I don't think anyone cares.  The only ones who care seem to be those who love the patient suffering from this deviation of breast cancer.  Give us some anwers, give us some truth.  I've seen enough polls; we need research, brilliance and a serious, honest approach to the reality of what triple negative hormone receptor breast cancer's origins and treatments will once day bring about a sensible and forthright answer.
 
Sorry, but I am tired of all this nonsical trasj which we all seem to wade thogh.
 
Sorry for my nefgatife attude, but I hae  ekpifj/

1/   How old are you
62
2/   Where were your born and where have you lived
rural Colorado, Denver near Rocky Moutain Arsenal for 10 years when they were actively storing chemical weapons (exh has prostate cancer) / back to rural Colorado 
3/   What is the specific name of your type of cancer Other than it being
       triple negative - IDC
4/   What is your blood type/ not sure
5/   Are you a drinker or a smoker
quit drinking 20 years ago - quit smoking 7 years ago
6/   Has anyone else in your family had Any kind of cancer
no immediate family
7/   How many pregnancies have you had - 2
8/   What childhood diseases have you had :  
Mumps, Measles, Chicken Pox - so did practically everyone my age in the days before vaccinations! :)
9/    Did you have any symptons of your breast cancer -
Fatigue, general feeling of being unwell,
Interesting that other women also say they were tired for a year or more, since the docs keep saying we "don't have symptoms" of breast cancer. I had been going to the doctors for 2 years telling them I didn't feel good and having all sorts of tests - that missed cancer. I iimmediately felt better/ different after mass was removed.)  I also had PAIN where the mass was growing but keep hearing "if it's not painful, it's not cancer." 
I also had dreams of my home being invaded for at least a year (by evil people, evil spirits, wild animals, etc.)
 
10/  How was your cancer first discovered  mammo - ultrasound
 
11/  Have you had a re-occurence in the past 2 years and if so,  . . . DX in May 2007
 
12/  How often did you have mammograms Before you were diagnosed/ Annually but had skipped the last year
 
13/  Have you ever had a traumatic blow to your body and where was it/ I fell off a skateboard & hurt my hip when I was 38! don't think that's related -- except that it is a source of INFLAMMATION which I think is related and was chronic before the DX.
 
14/  Have you ever had your hormones checked Prior to being diagnosed/no
 
15/  Before you were diagnosed, what medications were you on/ dilantin, asthma meds
 
16/  Have you been prescribed antibiotics more than once in a year Before your were diagnosed/ yes
 
BUT ALSO, when I was little we used DDT to spray for flys in our barns. I live by irrigated fields which have ariel applications of herbicides and pesticides and the spray comes close enough that it kills trees and shrubs on the perimeter of my acerage.  I ate some lead paint when I was a baby.  I started coloring my hair before 1964. I have used lotions, makeup, and shampoos that contain ingredients known to be carcinogens in lab animals and that are banned in the EU but still being sold in the U.S. 
 
We are exposed to toxins that make us toxic and then they use toxins to treat us.  In this kind of environment, where do we even begin a discussion like this?

Another question: What chemo treatment you are getting?

What strikes me is the FATIGUE most of us have!!!!

Second, we are mostly younger, around 45-48!

I had fatigue for years and was even treated for that, I thought it was the "fatigue syndrom" or low Fe.

Believing is 50%!Dx 7/10/07, Lumpectomy 8/24/07, double mast/no recont. 10/01/07, IDC, 3 cm, Grade 3, 0/4 nodes, Stage IIA, ER-/PR- HER2- Age 48, chemo 11/23/07 lung spots 3/08
