Re: New

hi very scary but as others have said read about the people who are still here years on. I was unsure but here I am 14 months on just live each day to the best of your ability and have no regrets, I find myself much less tolerant of events I really dont want to be at. Think positive....no one is guaranteed tomorrow!

Re: New

so scary when you first find out. I have mets in my lungs & bones - found Spring 2017. Started on Tamoxifen & Goserelin (because mine is hormone positive) and each scan since has shown lung tumours reducing in size and fluid less than it was. Please be reassured there is hope. You'll hear about/meet plenty of people on here who have been living with this for years. Hope you get your treatment plan soon

Hi there. Yes it’s really scary and you think of your family and things you have yet to do. My mets was in the bones and when I goggled I found out the average life expectancies were about 2 years. It just freaked me out!!
But here you’ll see there are many of us with mets and some have been here for many years.
If you are religious praying n asking people you are close with to pray may help.
Once the doctors check it out n a clear plan on treatment is found things become more bearable. Hang in there n think good thoughts.
Blessings to you

Hi Cazbo

What scans have you had and have you had the lung biopsied?

its so confusing to be told one thing then another.

My mets are bones and liver but I’m sure somebody will be along soon with lung involvement.

try not to panic too much there are ladies who have been around for years and years with lung mets. Have a mooch around these boards you will soon find some lung mets ladies
