Suskak, i was aware of a lump from Jan 2014 but it was misdiagnosed as a sebaceous cyst until July of that year. I have since had pulmonary embolism, pleural effusions and now also have bone mets. I have loads of chemo's....docetaxol; and capecitibine, eribulin....to answer your question Moijan......weekly taxol and carboplatin. Have also had electrochemotherapy for skin mets. I am currently on a chemo break, enforced by my oncologist, but there a very few left to go at as i am triple negative. I am looking into trials...anything to keep me going!!
Moijan...as you can see i have had eribulin..i was told at the time it was really good and could stay on it as lomng as it was working (not sure if i was on it before my status changed to triple neg) . I coped pretty well with it and didnt have any hair loss. nfortunately it didnt work for me and i only had about 5 cycles i think. As i said, i ahve heard really good reportd about it so hopefully it will do the job for you. xx
Have nefver heard of purtiziban or bondranab but as you are on herceptin i gather you are HER2+. I'm triple negative (started as er/pr+ her2-) which isnt good. I have had loads of chemo's and sems my only option left is to revisit some of them in the hope thay will work a second time around.x
only wanted to say, i was on Taxotere at the beginning after my initial chemo, mastectomy and radiols...its a good chemo, if a bit strong. I still have numbisg feet...ever since 2001! But i just thought maybe at your stage on it, if you get a willing slave to massage bothe feet with a nice oil or something...it might ward off the numbness?
i also got nutrapenic a few times so hopefully you wont.xxx
hope round 4 went well. Sounds as if you have a treatment plan in place which is always good!
