Annie, super news. The Letrozole and Palbociclib seem a great combo. I'm due my second scan next week on this regime, and am very confident of the results. The journey hasn't been without a struggle, but it's worth it. Well done you. 💐
youre welcome here, MBC is practically all we talk about! And you are not alone. Where are your mets? There are lots of threads relating to particular types of spread. I was diagnosed straight in with liver mets at primary diagnosis aged 44. I’m now 55 and have a good quality of life, still working and keeping fit. I’m HER 2+ as well and there have been such advances in treatment for this type of BC that we are now in a relatively favourable position in comparison to other types. I’m currently on a targeted chemo (Kadcyla) that uses herceptin to ‘lock on’ to the Her2 surface of the cells then pushes the chemo in to just those cells. So clever.
Do let us know how you are getting on with a treatment plan
Hello out there , I joined the club 3 years ago this Xmas. I am 64 years old and I was diagnosed when I was stage 4
I am hopeful, and have stayed positive so far.
My scan is tomorrow, so I will know more I suppose next week.
Thank you for your replies, it seems easier when someone else knows
what you are going through. :]
