Fulvestrant and Palbociclib

I have been on a research trial for four months which gave the trial drug alongside fulvestrant and am now being told I cannot have palbociclib on the NHS because it is only licensed for use alongside Fulvestrant which I’ve already had. The private cost is £4,500 per month! Has anyone else had the same problem or similar?
