oh I don't understand this at all ... can you get referred for a second opinion? I've been told that if I show progression in the liver then they will put me on TDM1? I've had liver mets from the outset but have been stable neck downwards on herceptin and perjeta since my initial treatment with docetaxal? Also I've heard about a few more options since I've been digging around . .. and there are many things they can do to treat the liver! I'd definately go and see a different oncologist if you can xxxx
Hilsy - Sorry to hear this news; this must have been so difficult for you to hear.
Did they say you couldn't try any other treatments?
Are you up to asking for a second opinion just to be sure they've covered every option?
Evening everyone from a wet & chilly Isle of Wight.
Will be going in for my 2nd docetaxol on Wed and I wanted to say a big thanks to you all & to Nicky in particular for the advice - writing a diary of side effects, sucking ice cubes whilst having the chemo etc. My hair began to fall out last week which was a bit sooner than I envisaged but I am now rocking the bald look & going out in my new wig. I was very apprehensive about this chemo, it is the first I have had in 2 years since diagnosis of primary plus bone mets, and I am hoping the 2 liver lesions have been caught early & will be blasted.
The forums are very comforting & informative but I do wish that all of us didn't have to be on here & were healthy instead.
Good luck to everyone with treatments & scans.
