Anyone taking Elirubin?

I am starting Eribulin December 11th. I am Stage IV with mets to the bone. I was on Hormonal Therapy for 2 months, but it did not work. Was first diagnosed in 2001 and put on Epirubicin. Tamoxifen for 5 yrs. and recurrence and had a Mastectomy. Took Herceptin and developed cardiac toxicity with CHF and EF of 10%. Recurrence in 2010 with bone and skin mets to Mastecomy Breast. They are large open wounds and very painful. Hoping this treatment will clear them up–this is the worse of the cancer at this time. Anyone else take this drug and how did it work for your disease? Am quite nervous about this new drug, but I want quality of life.
