And Lou evrry time i have an ache i think.its a new tumour! I think.we all do.x
Lou. I have mets in lung, chest wall, liver, hip, pelvis, rib, shoulder and several.up and down my spine. Im way down the long list of treatment plans so have tried lots of treatments from letrozole to tamoxifen and capcitabine. Im now waiting for chemo...taxol. its a long slog but worth itto still be here! Lots of luck with your treatment plan xx
HI. I’m on Ibrance since September with no side effects. when I got diagnosed I went into complete meltdown. I’m a single parent too.
Try to just get through each day at mo. It does get a lot easier. Once you have all the info . I was so surprised how much treatment there is out there. You’ll feel a bit better once you’re on meds xx
Just realised lou that my previous post to was cut short before i finished you have a treatment plan ready to start which is good talk to your team the early days of diagnosis are the worst for anxiety hang on in there x
Hope you are feeling a little better tell your onc how you feel they may be able to help your fears with some reasurance
Take care xx
Lou i feel your anxiety i really do its horrilble was diagnosed in jan with v small lung mets had no treatment on a period of watchful waiting as last scan showed static results, but had an xray on thursday which showed possible chest wall lymphs now have cancer, need ct been told currently 3 weeks wait 😨 my mind is going to some terrible places my right arm shoulder and elbow has been hurting for a couple weeks and been getting daily headaches so you can imagine trouble is the anxiety because of the diagnosis makes every pain feel like its mets my only advice i can give is try not to let it consume you if you have a maggies near they have excellent therapists or ring the bcc helpline
Thankyou for replying, I just feel like I can’t breath and getting more pain so I think the cancer must be spreading everywhere.
Where are your mets ? Just feel cos I’ve got them in some vital organs
Lou i know it feels like the end of the world right now but with all the treatments out there and new treatments being found there is hope. Im 5 yrs past diagnosis and there are ladies on this site with more years than me. Take it 1 day at a time and get as much info as you can deal with.....dont bombard yourselef with statistics etc as everyone is different. There is so much support out there too so take advantage of it. Im having complimentary therapy so if you get offered it take it!
Thinking of you carol xx
I feel for you. What a difficult situation. I have secondaries and have been on Ibrance for a year. So far very few side effects. You should feel better when you start treatment x
I’m absolutely devastated I can’t stop crying and shaking. I’m 38 single mum with 3 young children. I only went to the doctors with a sore hip, had ct last Monday and hospital called me Friday to go in for results. The tumour in my liver is 4 cm I think and a few in lungs but there less than 1cm. I had an injection in my tummy on Friday and got to go get bloods done Thursday to see if I can start ibrance on Friday.
I’m looking for just some reassurance.
