Hi Hester 77. I was diagnosed with lung mets 4 and half years ago and still working full time and live a full active life. Off to Canada for New Year and looking forward to 2018. All the best on Zoladex and Aromasin.xx
Many thanks for sharing your good news. Your inspiring story has made my day.
thanks for sharing, it means a lot.
this forum is a lifeline but i know i use it in times of need and when im not i tend to do other stuff. i think this is the same for many, meaning that there are fewer good news stories. this exactly how it should be and good luck to all who are getting on with a normal life but it is reassuring when people take the time to check in and show us the light and where we are aiming for.
thank you and so pleased.
What great news - on all counts :-) I remember your story only too well as we came on here about the same time and I'm soooo pleased everything is going well for you. Keep living life to the full.
well what a result you have put a smile on my face ,myself and maryanne will be sure too raise a glass or two too you !!! ,love huggs and 1,000,000,000 wishes for the future

Such wonderful news.
Great to hear from you and of course it does give hope to some of us too.
May your health and happiness continue to improve.
Thank you for taking the time to post such a positive story.
Big hugs to you. Well done.
How Wonderful Anne!
Wonderful on both counts - NED and a new relationship,
I wish you many years of happiness with them both!
Thank you for sharing your uplifting news,
That is really wonderful news to hear your NED and long may it continue.
I would just like to say a big Thankyou for posting as we do not hear enough positive stories like yours and would like to add that I think you are an inspirational woman, it is heart warming to think you are happy and fulfilled after everything you say you have been through.
I think a lot of people will be inspired by what you have said.
I remember you from 2008 as i was going through treatment then. Its so good to hear from you and hear you are enjoying life to the full.
Well pleased for you and sending you hugs
What lovely news - I hope you stay NED for many more years to come. And it's absolutely fanastic news hearing about your new relationship, you deserve it.
Hi Anne, You have given me the boost I needed, I was Dx on 24th Feb with IBC and lung mets at the same time, I was shocked to say the least, Its hard dealing with IBC never mind the secondaries.I see the ONC on tuesday, starting chemo soon but thats as far into the future that I allow myself to see, I am so glad to hear your doing so well , maybe there's hope for me too. Thankyou.
Thank you so much for sharing your good news and congratulations on NED and new relationship!
I will shortly be at my 1 year anniversary of secondary bone dx and it's uplifting to hear good stories!
So pleased for you - keep it up!!
Lots of love and big smiles, Julie xx
What a heartening story. I'm so pleased life is improving for you so much. It must also to give hope to all those with secondaries - and those of us having primary treatment - we never know what the future holds.
Thank you for sharing.
Have just past my 3 year anniversary of my devastating secondary diagnosis in both lungs and around my collarbone. As many of you may know my husband was unable to cope and walked out soon afterwards and 2008 was an incredibly tough year and I just couldn't see the way ahead.
I just had to post to let you know that I've now been NED since November 2008 and have been on just Arimidex and zoladex from then on. Just had my latest clear scan results and I've been living life to the full since picking myself up again gradually!Life is full of making the most of every day,lots of holidays,interesting experiences and spending time with old and new friends.I've even recently met and started seeing a wonderful man which I never thought would happen after my marriage breakup and secondary diagnosis.
Although my immune system is not great and I've picked up one bug after another I find having lots to look forward to all the time helps me enormously.
I would never have dreamed back in 2008 that I could ever be as happy or fulfilled as I am now despite knowing that my health could deteriorate at any time or that romance would be on the cards and that I would ever feel even remotely "normal" again! I hope this can inspire others who may be recently diagnosed. This site has helped me enormously to not feel so alone.
Take care all,
