I am 55 and live in London.
i am awaiting a clearer prognosis following scans and biopsy.
holding onto your positive outlook. I find sometimes mindfulness helps. We're struggling here too as my partner is closing his business's. Strangely might just help us focus on what we want to do next.
One day at a time.
Hello Sam. Thank you for posting. I work for BA as a Cabin Crew Manager. Going to work makes me feel normal. I look good at the moment, nobody would know there is anything wrong. I am being treated at The Chrsitie in Manchester. The bone met has terrified me. Sadly children were never an option for me.
i can imagine your fear, anxiety about telling your son.
if you look back at my posts you will get an idea of what I have been going through.
lets stay in touch Sam.
Tell me a little about you. I am 52 and live in Cheshire
Thinking of you - this looking at a grim prognosis is tough! making each moment matter
I have just heard my own diagnosis of lesions on the liver, and freaking too.
looking around for something that I cam do to get back in control is hard.
I have only comfort and holding to offer, and wanting to stay in touch with you,as I too am terrified. Telling my son was the hardest.
Here's to us finding out the best treatment, and at the same time making every moment matter. I can't believe this is me saying this now. Middle of the night ramblings etc etc
please keep posting, because I don't know what else to do.
Hello. I have been informed from my Oncologist that the liver mets have grown and some new ones have appeared. There is a tumor on the lower spine too.I asked about my prognosis which is more like 2 years than 5.
i have spent the weekend in shock with my partner. I have been offered Fulvestrant and a trail drug AZD5363.
I am also recieveing Denoumab in injection form.
i have just got my life on track, I love my job working for an airline. I feel devastated.
i want to run away.
i too was initally diagosed with liver mets and am est positive. i was put on tamoxifen and it worked very well for 3.5 years with very little side effects. i also had a liver ablation where they burn out the cancer in the liver. sounds horrible but really not. overnight stay in hospital.
4 years on from diagnosis i am still well sand fit and working full time in a demanding job. am currently on a trial drug but if that stopped working there is a huge raft of drugs - old and new ones that will allow you to carry on with quality of life.
