Hi Han, just wanted to say hello and welcome. i too am TN recrrence in skin, plera and bone. I have gone through virtually every treatmnt there is and am now on trials but it sounds that you have already found a good treatment. there are loads out there so try not to despair. I too worry about the life expectancy thing but having recently found that my cancer is genetic i am far more concerned about my daughter. Keep posting and ask anything you like, there will always be someone with an answer or just a friendly 'hug'. xx
Welcome Han! I'm not TN but wanted to welcome you! Try to ignore those life expectancy time lines! Many people live longer! FF
Hi had appointmen with oncologist today for my treatment plan of chemotherapy, however chest x Ray shows glands in lungs affected and I have infammation in other parts of body. I only found my lump in breast in Jan and thought hospital were excellent in treatment and timescales. I have been suffering with stiffness in knees and ankles a couple of months and shortness of breath last couple of weeks but this was put down t rheumatoid arthritis, but all tests came back negative. Had lumpectomy 23rd Feb and was told all clear margins and no cancer in lymph nodes but was TNBC. It appears the cancer has spread to lungs, devasted as thought chemo and radiotherapy would sort me out, now it appears treatment will only try and reduce spread.
