Re: ER positive liver mets options?

Hi Danica, I was diagnosed with liver, lung and spine mets too. I had six doses of Taxotere which shrank my liver tumours and kept the lung tumours stable. I am now on Letrozole and will find out at my next scan if it is working. They can't tell until 12 weeks so fingers crossed

Re: ER positive liver mets options?

Hi Danika. I was dx with liver mets last April 2013. I had a right breast mx, docetaxal with Pertuzumab and Herceptin. After 6 treatments the liver met was gone on the scan and my latest scan was again clear in the liver. I now continue on Herceptin and Pertuzumab and am hoping to go back onto Tamoxifen (had to stop because I had some bleeding). I now know quite alot of ladies that have stayed clear or at bay on Herceptin only for a very long time and continue to stay well. I preferred to go for the aggressive approach as I am only 44 and I thought it was the best option for me to deal with what ever maybe roaming around in my body. Take care and I hope you find the right treatment for you.x

Re: ER positive liver mets options?

Hi Danika, 

I have lung liver and spinal Mets also er pos or pos and her 2 neg. Liver Mets discovered last Dec after 15 months taking evorilmus/exemestane which kept lung Mets stable during this time. (Lung Mets since 2011)

Anyway started taxotere in Jan 2014 and

 scan halfway through tax showed good results on shrinking liver tumours,bones healing, lungs still stable or improved. Just had last taxotere on Thursday and onc is confident that tx is still working so in three weeks I will start Arimidex which is an aromatase inhibitor. He will rescan me three weeks later and see how things are going. It will be great if I can stay on hormone treatment for a while but I do feel that my aggressive tx has been worth it and after the first few days of my 3 weekly cycles I haven't been too bad.

Not everyone has chemo when DX with liver Mets and hopefully someone will post with their experience.

Take care and good luck with treatment. Love Sheila. Xx

Hi,Danica,if hormone treatment works for you and you haven't used them all up your onc may use one on them. Or it may be chemo.
Sorry I can't be much help but hopefully a liver met lady will be along soon to give you advice.
Huge hugs,Helen xx
