For most people, cancer is a catastrophe. Although cancer is not completely equal to death, it still means that life may end at any time. The pain of illness itself, the pain of treatment, and the loneliness of the soul are all incomprehensible to ordinary people.
As a medical worker, I have also experienced all the pain that cancer patients need to face, but the advancement of medicine has made it more and more possible for breast cancer to be cured. Breast cancer has gradually become a "chronic disease". Breast cancer patients have the opportunity to live healthy and healthy. I also hope to share my story with my sisters.
First, encounter triple negative breast cancer, from despair to rational treatment
Looking at the hospital’s diagnosis report, the most dangerous triple negative breast cancer, suddenly At that time, my mind was blank, and I still could not accept this reality. I changed from a doctor to a patient...
As a medical worker in a large hospital, I am used to a stressful and fast-paced working environment, but the sudden change still caught me unprepared. I also imagined the day when I became a patient, but when I was diagnosed with malignant breast cancer, I still fell into deep despair.
I have a pair of children. I originally wanted to work hard to do my job well, provide a good growth environment for the children, and watch them get married and start a business someday. But the reality is very cruel. I have to fight against the disease. I used to help others to overcome the disease, but now I am the one who needs help.
It's man-made. I also learned that breast cancer is not that terrible anymore. As long as I get serious and active treatment, I still have a good chance to survive. For me, it is not about taking care of my feelings of sadness and despair, but about treating my current disease situation rationally, finding the best treatment plan, and striving to live longer and better.
I also thought about a few things I should do:
First, find the right doctor.
Secondly, adjust your own psychology and accept the fact of illness with a calm mind.
Thirdly, understand the condition of the disease and find the most suitable treatment.
I am very fortunate that my hospital has close cooperation with well-known medical institutions in the United States, so I can quickly learn the most authoritative treatment information, which also provides me with good conditions for treatment.
Second, guaranteeI still gave up. It’s important to choose the right treatment method.
With a heavy heart, I started hospitalization and completely accepted the disease. Whether breast cancer patients face breast-conserving or full-cut is a very difficult decision. As a doctor, I also have to face it.
Fortunately, breast cancer treatment is developing very fast now. The hospital I am in has also carried out a multidisciplinary MDT consultation. According to my situation, the doctor has prescribed a neoadjuvant chemotherapy breast-conserving plan. For Her2 positive and triple negative patients, this program is now being used more and more, and there are data showing that many patients can achieve complete remission after treatment.
Because I am a pharmacology major, and I learned about neoadjuvant chemotherapy in detail, I agree to use neoadjuvant chemotherapy and try it with several chemotherapy drugs first. After a period of chemotherapy, I did B-ultrasound and MRI imaging, Found that the treatment effect is very good.
What I did not expect is that after a series of chemotherapy regimens are completed, I have achieved complete remission. I am really the luckiest part of the people. My confidence has also greatly improved, and I believe in myself. The choice is very wise.

Of course, this selection process is not so easy, but this experience also made me understand a few points:
1. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy is a good treatment, and this kind of treatment will be more and more in the future. The more perfect.
2. Surgical resection is a huge harm to the patient itself. In the long term, it is very bad for the psychology.Benefits, so surgery needs to be treated with caution.
3. Faced with breast cancer treatment, it is a long-term process that requires both physical and psychological preparation.
After this treatment experience, I also realized that the correct treatment of breast cancer is very important, and the right treatment will directly determine the effect of the treatment. I have also established a breast cancer patient group in my hospital, and I have a lot of exchanges. I also hope to share some of my experiences on the Mijian platform in the future.
Finally, I would like to add one point here. Everyone's illness and physical condition are very different, and neoadjuvant therapy is only one of the good treatment methods. Based on your pathological diagnosis report and following the advice given by the attending doctor, I believe you will be able to find the most suitable treatment for you.
Three, a good mood is more important than anything
There is a saying that "happy heartIt’s a good medicine." I have a deeper understanding of this sentence now.
Chemotherapy is a painful process for the body. When vomiting and hair loss actually occur, the psychological impact is huge. But Compared with the changes in appearance, I would think that being alive is more important.
The treatment time can only account for one-fourth, and three-quarters are in normal life, so how to live is very important Yes.
After a long treatment, I got a gratifying result. The report showed that no cancer cells were seen at all. It can be said that it is clinically cured. But how to keep healthy and not relapse, I I still can’t take it lightly. My own experience is that “good mood is more important than anything”.
I started to change my previous stressful life, learn yoga regularly every week, and I also started to pay attention to adjusting my diet. , As long as I can make myself feel good, I will choose to do it.
1. Maintain mental balance. Women should learn to self-regulate and control their emotions, and deal with emotional disputes and emotional crises in interpersonal relationships, family, marriage, etc. rationally. Only when the spirit is comfortable can it be beneficial to the mental and physical balance.
2, control body obesity. Obesity should be prevented during pregnancy and after menopause. Maintaining a suitable weight can reduce the risk of cancer.
3. A reasonable lifestyle, quit smoking and drinking, eat more yellow-green vegetables, fruits, edible fungi, and soybean products; persistently participate in sports and colorful entertainment activities To strengthen the mind and body; promote late marriage and family planning, prevent multiple miscarriages, and breastfeed after giving birth.
4. Harmonious and regular sex life, it can not only bring physical and mental pleasure and pleasure to oneself, enhance the relationship between husband and wife, but also help reduce the occurrence of breast hyperplasia and breast cancer.

Last year, I learned that Mijian has an insurance policy for Luckuoai, but it cannot be covered by neoadjuvant chemotherapy. This year, the insurance conditions were released. I didn’t think too much. I felt that buying an insurance would give me more peace of mind. No one wants to relapse, but if an insurance can make you feel better, it will also be very helpful for recovery. .
Holding hope, you can expect miracles to happen, and I hope my story can bring you strength!
