New member to this forum.  Nice to find a location where others have the same DX as me. I'm reluctantly starting TC Chemo in 2 weeks.  I refused the AC+T treatment.  I'd rather not nuke my immune system at all, especially since I already have Hashimoto's disease, where antibodies are already attacking my Thyroid. Onc & surgeon insist I have to do chemo. Sometimes I think this is just a drug company scam to Nuke nuke every cancer patient even if its not necessary.  The side effects freak me out, especially those that can occur later after Chemo. 

Anyway, thanks for letting me vent.  Looking forward to learning from you all.

Dx TNBC IDC 12/18/18 (age 53), Stage 1, Grade 3, 1.6cm, 0/5Nodes, BRCA-1 Neg, BRAC-2 inconclusive, Left breast. Double Mastectomy w/ recon., Starting TC x 6 on April 26th.
