Re: Younger Women With Secondaries Together - Manchester

Hi everyone. I'm Jo and I'm 41. I'm coming from Chorley so will be there in the morning. I was diagnosed with primary breast cancer in 2006 and secondaries to liver and bone in August 2016. I look forward to meeting everyone. I hope those that are there tonight have a good time. Xx

Re: Younger Women With Secondaries Together - Manchester

Hi All,

 

I'm travelling up tomorrow so should be in Manchester around 6pm so would love to meet with anyone who is around then. I was diagnosed in 2013 and then again in 2015 with spread to my bones, lungs and chest wall. I've had a new hip as the cancer broke my left one!

 

I'm looking forward to meeting you all. M

Re: Younger Women With Secondaries Together - Manchester

Hi all. I'm Emma I'm coming all the way from Rayleigh in Essex! So I am staying over on the Thursday too. I have no idea what time I'll get there though. Hopefully not too late and if anyone's still up I can join you for a hot chocolate. 😜 I was initially diagnosed with primaries in 2007 and recurrence in 2012. Secondaries came in the form of extensive liver and bone mets in June 2015. Looking forward to meeting you all. Xx

The countdown is on! Only a couple of days left! Excited and nervous in equal measure. I'm not that far from Manchester so travelling over on Friday morning.
Hope you all have a good time on Thursday evening, those coming from further afield.

Re: Younger Women With Secondaries Together - Manchester

Hello all.

 

I'm Lindsey and will be coming from Leeds and staying at the hotel from the Thursday night. I live in Leeds, but get my treatment on the Wirral (Oncology stuff) and Chester (breast unit/surgical team) as that's where I'm originally from, my parents are there... and the Leeds hospital misdiagnosed me, so not much faith in them!

 

I just turned 35 in April. My primary diagnosis was Nov 2015 and I had chemo (docetaxyl and cyclophosphamide), skin-sparing mastectomy and axillary clearance on my right, then radiotherapy. My secondary diagnosis was kind of at the same time; they saw "suspicious" lesions on my spine in my first CT and MRI scans but weren't sure until after chemo... they reacted to it, so that confirmed they were related (March 2016). I'm now on Tamoxifen and Denosumab, and just had a prophylactic mastectomy on my left side this March. My last CT in October, MRI in Nov, and bone scan in April showed everything to be stable at this point... and so my Oncologist has now said she won't be ordering routine scans going forward, which is a bit terrifying as they have been a bit of a security blanket!

 

Really looking forward to meeting people in similar situations. I'm really only just facing the whole secondaries thing, as it was so close to primary diagnosis that all the aggressive first treatments have been going on and it hasn't really been addressed (other than to put me on Denos). I'm at the "moving forward" stage and finding it a bit of a challenge xx

Re: Younger Women With Secondaries Together - Manchester

I was diagnosed with primaries in 2010 aged 37. Almost got to the 5 year stage but was diagnosed with lung and liver mets in May 2015. Bones joined them last autumn.
I'm on zoladex, denusomab and had 6 months of cape (July-Dec 2016) but having a break as doing ok for now. As long as no one wants me to walk up a hill!
Really looking forward to meeting some 'real' people with secondaries, although the online community is very supportive.

I was diagnosed with primary in 2005 when I was 27 and got secondaries in 2015 in my spine....after a back operation I'm on zoladex, letrosole and denosumab and am doing okay....

not met any other woman with secondaries and feeling at a stage now in which I want to talk to others...
