Re: Results Day

I asked for the same and I was told that to have surgery would mean coming off meds

Re: Results Day

Thank you Liz. I hope my treatment works too and I'm still here for a long time yet! Just have days when I feel I'm living a death sentence and others I'm more positive. It's so unfair we are all in this situation..big higs to us all going through this horrible journey❤

Re: Results Day

Initially I was told I would have mastectomy only had lumpectomy 14 years ago plus all lymph nodes removed the treatment has shrunk the tumour in my breast and as was mentioned they feel surgery can lead to cancer cells being dsiturbed if it is not an encapsulated tumour although I did read a newspaper article saying treatment was more effective if lump was removed maybe worth asking . I am 19 months on and lump is definitely smaller . liz xx

Re: Results Day

I was diagnosed with primary and secondary popular at the same time, I'm on Abemaciclib and letrozole.

 

I still have my original tumour and lymph nodes, when I asked if they would remove them he said that sometimes when the Cancer has already started to travel surgery can open more gateways for it to do so.  I like you would be happier if they got rid of it but the research I've done on line seems to agree that doing so doesn't improve the prognosis.

Re: Results Day

Thanks Liz. Thats good to hear things are stable for you. What I cant get my head round is why would they not remove the lump in my breast anyway and just treat with letrezole and treat the spread in my bones? I'm terrified this lump will spread further now! The consultant said it's important they focus on strengthening my bones first and stop further damage there but I just want this lump removing!  X

Re: Results Day

Results given and as I thought breast cancer returned in same breast and same type ER positive. Spread to spine,shoulder and pelvis. Started on letrezole today and see Onc in 2 weeks for treatment. Monthly intravenous bisphosphonates. Still in shock I think as went straight to the pub! Feel better knowing but expecting the reality to kick in soon! Big hugs to others in the same **bleep**ty boat and thank you to those who wished me well today xxx

Results Day

Hello and big hugs to everyone who is getting their results today like me. I'm absolutely dreading it and so scared of what might be in store for me treatment wise and prognosis. Nothing can change the situation I'm in but trying to be positive. I'm sure I will be back on here again soon when I know what I'm facing! X
