Hi, I haven't posted much recently but I am on Fulvestrant injections and have been since November ish.Ive had 21 years of breast cancer and many local recurrences after being ok for 14 years, also many treatments. I was diagnosed with secondary in a chest lymph node in July 2013 and have been on the oral chemo, Capecitabine from then until November last year. I'm probably on Fulvestrant because ive already been on Tamoxifen and 2 Aromatase Inhibitors. They all worked for a while.
I don't think Fulvestrant is a new treatment, it's been around for a while but I think other hormonals are used in preference because they are cheaper!!
I'm finding it a doddle of a treatment so I hope it keeps me stable. My opinion only, but I'm not convinced it is effective for a long time so just make sure you have regular scans. Wishing you best of luck with it. I massage my derrière after the injections, it lessens the slight discomfort! x
