Trying to cheer up, but news cancer has spread always comes as a shock, especially when it is unexpected. I know I have a good team but this will be my fourth line of treatment in 16 months. Difficult having to break the news to everyone too. Will keep you posted
Just being looked after by a team of experts is reassuring. We all know that our medication will eventually stop working but always rest assured that there are dozens of alternatives. Always remember this and be prepared that we will jump from one vehicle to the other. Please don't panic and keep us posted of what the well vested team will recommend.
Cheer up please
Thank you, Deb. What chemo are you on? Just feeling down as, after having 12 months of chemo for bone mets, I was looking forward to a bit of a break. The news today left me reeling. There will be a multi disciplinary team meeting on Weds about my case and BCN is going to phone me after the meeting. Seeing onc in 3 weeks
thanks again for your reply.
Seems like I only post on here when I have bad news, but I have just learned that as well as having secondary bone mets a recent CT scan has revealed some lesions in the liver. The biggest one is 10 mm. I have to have an ultra scan and see the onc in 3 weeks when he will decide whether to put me on Cape. Prior to this I was on Taxol for 12 months, but it stopped working so I have been on Tamoxifen for the last 3 weeks. I just wondered whether any other women were in a similar position and could give me some advice.
Still reeling from the news so any advice would be appreciated.
