Hi craftlady,
Thank you for your question and for joining EmpowHER. We're so glad you're here. I found a great response to a similar ASK you may want to check out. It is filled with resources for learning more info, and also has some feedback from other members. I hope it's helpful for you:
EmpowHER ASK: Triple Negative Breast Cancer, and here is additional articles and information that may be of interest: Triple Negative Breast Cancer Information and Articles
If you have more questions about your ongoing treatment, don't be afraid to call your doctor's offices and ask to speak with a doctor or nurse to go over the plan. If they're resistant, or seem rushed, schedule an appointment to go over the plan. For your own peace of mind, and to advocate for your own health, it's a good thing.
Good luck, and let us know how you're doing.
