I've attached a link to some information about treatments for secondary BC which I thought might be helpful. There's also details of a resource pack which you can download or send for.
Very best wishes
I have a diagnosis from scans, but no prognosis yet. It's very likely to be lung mets. Primary diagnosis in Oct 2006. Mastectomy, Chemo, Rads. Reconstruction in 2012.
I am so out of the loop with treatments, and know very little about secondaries. Can anyone give me an idea how my treatment is likely to progress? I feel fairly well, mainly fatique. Tumour in middle of lung, lower part. Poss another small area too. I have read surgery is less likely with mets, particularly if in more than one area.
I had FEC chemo last time. It was the worst part of the treatment. Am I likely to have the same chemo again? What about rads? Doesn't that cause hardening? If so, I am imagining thats not good for soft lung tissue.
I have had a PET scan 2 days ago. My nurse specialist thinks they will bring my appointment forward as this happened quicker than expected due to a cancellation.
Names of some common chemos would help so I can read up and be semi prepared when I see consultant.
