Re: Recent secondary diagnosis

Hi Jane. I am capecitabine and I am half way through 5th cycle. Hands and feet took a battering in cycle 3 but dosage was reduced and the improvement is good. Went to see onc on Friday for results of scan and after 3 cycles I have no visible signs of cancer in the liver now. Bones and lungs do not show new signs of activity so they have remained stable. The chemo itself gives a good quality of life and I can do almost everything I used to do. The tiredness is the worst but I just take a nap when I need to and I'm ok. I wish you all the luck I've had so far on this journey. I'm not too good on this site and I don.t know how to leave private messages. But I'm here for you (as are all the others travelling this road) if you need support.

Big {{{hugs}}}  Helen

Re: Recent secondary diagnosis

Someone has to win and i am determined its going to be me. You can too.

Re: Recent secondary diagnosis

Hi jane. I was diagnosed april 2012 with all three after being clear for 5years. It is a shock but u will come to terms with it. I had tax chemo and results were really good. Cancer markers came down from 1200 to 60. I was put on letrozole but it didnt work for me. I am on oral chemo Xeloda and it is working well. Side effects r not too bad. Hands and feet sore but dose can be adjusted to help. I wish u well. Keep positive and enjoy your good days. I have never felt that this cancer will kill me. Im determined ride the storm for at least another 10yrs.
God bless you. Helen

Re: Recent secondary diagnosis

hi Jane I managed to find the liver/lung/bone thread so if you look down the list of posts you should find it listed. Hope you are feeling better today after chemo.

Recent secondary diagnosis

I have recently been diagnosed with secondary breast cancer in my liver, lung and bones. Is anyone else on the the site going through the same. I have just had my first dose of Toxatere with my second one due in a couple of days. I'm feeling a bit lost and just totally unsure about my future and would like to chat with others who have gone or are going through the same as I am. I can find threads for ladies with mets in either bones, liver or lungs but not all three. is anyone out there
