im on the same treatment along with Denosumab.
my primary was in 1999 and then can back 5 years ago in bone and a year ago in liver. I’ve been on Faslodex the last year and 2 months ago we added Abemaciclib. I started on the 150mg dose twice a day but came out in a terrible allergic rash. I’ve been on the reduced dose of 50mg twice a day which has been great and we’re about to try the 100mg twice a day to see if I can tolerate it. Tummy fine on 50 but was bad on 150.
lets hope it works well for us both x
You're welcome - it takes a while to find your way around the forum .It seems like a few people are giving this combination a try - I hope it brings good results for everyone 🤞🤞🤞🤞.
Thank you for the link, was good to read others experiences. Being a technophobe I'd never have found it!
Hi Bev, welcome to the forum .This thread may be helpful for you https://forum.breastcancercare.org.uk/t5/Treatments-and-medical-issues/Abemaciclib-and-Fulvestrant/t... .All the best .Jill .
I'm new to the group after being diagnosed with liver mets this week. I hot initially diagnosed 11 years ago,developed bone mets to pubis after 4 years and was stable on letrozole and denosumab. I've had some pain but 7 years on have further bone mets to femur, L spine, pelvis,pubic bone and liver.
I'm to start on abemaciclib and fulvestrant. I've been told it's relatively new.
Is anyone else on these drugs? I've been told they are a new alternative to chemo and trials have been promising. Here's hoping!
Any replies will be much appreciated,
