I was diag with BC in April last year. Had a mammoplasty. Then through a 'routine' CT and bone scan followed by a sternum biopsy it was confirmed mets in the whole of my breast bone. Finished 3 X FEC and 3 x Docetaxol in December. Finished 15 radiotherapy sessions 4 weeks ago. Only on Tamoxifen. I'm awaiting an appointment with my Onc and a scan to check the results of the treatment.
Hi. I don't mind adding mine. Primary 1999, Secondaries in lungs dx 2009 after small tumour found under skin on scalp (removed by GP who thought it to be a cyst). Did 8 Doxetaxol then oophrectomy as treatment plan and biopsy showed cancer had spread to one ovary. Now on Arimidex but last dexa scan not good but couldn't tolerate alendronicacid so just wait n see now, hugs to all.
I had a tumour in 2010, adjuvant FEC ,two WLE, rads and Herceptin with Arimidex. Had swollen collarbone in Nov which after testing showed shoulder,sternum and lung affected it was my supposed to be final onc app! So on doxcetal,Herceptin and Perjita just had second and all being well will finish after eight treatments but looking at H&P for life. It's a scary place to be but since the first was a loading dose I tolerated this second go much better apart from tum issues which aren't pleasant at silly o'clock and experienced my first ever steroid high yesterday! Ladies we definitely are stronger thank we know. I look like Aunt Sally with a bright red face oh deep joy but as yet coping better than the first go round.
Hi ladies, yes I agree this is a useful thread to have.
Quick history on me, primary 2007, bone mets dx 2015 (exactly 2yrs ago this month), firstly put on tamoxifen then switched to letrozole Oct last year, I'm also on adcal, denosumab and zoladex injections. I had no s/e on tamoxifen but have really struggled with letrozole, now almost 6 months later they are finally settling down but I truly believe that the reiki I have been having for the last 5 weeks have helped enormously, although I do have pain it's not as bad. Knees, fingers and feet hurt especially after resting, my onc told me letrozole effect the small bones most with achey s/e.
