Hi Roopam

I’m so sorry to hear this. Please do keep an eye on them and don’t be fobbed off. I had a left side masectomy follwed by fec-t in 2010. Was on Tamoxifen for 3 years and then on to exemestane. I found lumps in my neck 2 1/2 years ago and scans showed everything was OK but I’ve just recently been diagnosed with secondary cancer in my lymph nodes in my neck, although I am told this is rare. I’ve been accepted on to the Furva trial and just had my second cycle.

I don’t mean to cause you extra worry but just a note of caution to be aware and to insist that they are monitored.

I do wish you well for your chemo, I’m sure you’ll get through this.Big hugs to you xxx

Hiya Dinah.

Just googled the fulva trial and it looks like one of the good guy treatments …no hair loss!
All the best with it …it’s a drug I haven’t heard of before.
