So sorry to hear this news . You must be devastated and no wonder you are confused. Did you get the opportunity to ask why you are having chemo when you have been told it won’t work ? Maybe it’s a different drug they are going to use ?
very best wishes
One year now since diagnosed bone mets. On EE and densonub injection every 4 weeks. Just come to terms with the reality of this and has been a very anxious year but have been doing well and other than a painful hip which am told is an improving situation due to the densonub and also am supposedly stable. Have been so encouraged by reading good inspirational stories from you ladies keeps me positive. So thank you.
that's amazing ff, 15 years coming on 16.It's so good for all new people on the site to hear this because it's really frightening at first. welcome to all newbies by the way, there are a lot of you at the moment.
hugs to all,as ever
Ramade, In 2003 we went across country and visited a bunch of our National Parks. I couldn't walk very far at all. I was congested and coughing up junk. Came home and was the same way. Thought I developed allergies. I slowly got worse over the next 2 years and finally told the Dr I thought it was more than allergies. Once I started chemo the coughing was gone. So even though I was dx in 2005 we feel it was there before the summer of 2003. FF
I'm another positive story, I'm in my 6th year of secondaries and my 24th year since my primary with a few local recurrences in between. I know our specialists want to allay fears but being told you are "cured" after 5 years might make you too complacent possibly?
IThanks for your recent post ff it gives us all hope. i will be 11 years with secondaries end of year and that includes the first 4 years where i was not treated at all because they read the scans wrong. So hang in there folks!
Cazbo, I'm on my way out the door for work. I can't promise you this, but do hope it can give you some hope. I've had lung mets for 13 years. FF
