Dear Jane just back from holiday,I am so happy for your news stable is about as good as it gets[apart from NED].Now you can relax a bit and try to enjoy the summer.Love to you.Valxx
i don't often reply to post as i can't offer much advice, i come on this forum as my mum has been diagnosed with triple neg, and if it wasn't for reading your previous posts i would not have know much about this at all, so i would just like to take the opertunity to thank you.
you are an incredibly strong woman, and i am so happy for you that you have had this fantastic news. hope you have a lovley summer. take care
i would just like to echo what i have said above to you too, great news.
you are all brave woman and are all in my thoughts and prayers, love and hugs to you all.
Just to echo what everyone has already said, fantastic news and long may it continue. I'm having a weepy moment for you!
Hi Jane and pinkdov,
I' so pleased for you both. Its so good to hear good news it really lifts everyones spirits up.
Hugs to you both
Excellent news, Jane, and to everyone who's had good news recently. And to everyone who's going through it at the moment, the good times are ahead for you to look forward to 🙂
Good luck to us all.
Wow Jane, you keep on proving them wrong. Long may it continue!!!
Hope my Triple Neg defies the grim prognosis too!!!
Really pleased to hear your good news as I know you have had endless chemo.
Enjoy the break and the summertime
fantastic, stable is very good news! I also got the results of my last CT scan the other day, and also my tumor in supraclavicular and mediastinic lymphonodes has been stable since December, I am also triple negative and I am also hoping not basal, although this is not so easy to define from the markers known so far!
I am going on with the treatment, since this stuff I am taking (inhibitor of PI3K, phase I/II trial) is not giving me major side effects.
Hope for everybody here that "stable" could become the new "negative" !
I'm really pleased that you've had some good news for a change!
I had some this morning as well. Had my CT scan last week and went in for my results today and it shows that my liver is still stable. My oncologist discussed with me about not having 3 monthly scans now (which I've had for the past 2 years) so we've agreed that I won't have them but will still be up at the hospital every 3 weeks for my chemo and zometa. So I'm really pleased about this as well.
Hope you're going to 'celebrate' in some way!!??
great news especially for all those who dont have the positive attitude that others on this site bang on about!!!!
Very good news Jane - enjoy your chemo free period
I would just like to add an aside hre about basal cells. Here is a 'take home' message from a research paper paublished in 2007 which tries to demystify basal cell carcinoma;
Basal-like cancers are a subset with distinct morphology.
They are often but not invariably triple negative (ER–, PgR– and HER2–).
They have a distinct genomic, expression and protein profile.
The subset is heterogeneous with respect to behaviour, not all being uniformly of poor prognosis.
Currently, therapy is same as for other high grade cancers but new options are under investigation.
That's great news Jane, I hope you enjoy your break. It is horrible waiting, I had scans and bloods done this week and see the oncologist on Tuesday, I am so worried about my breathing,but just have to wait and see.
Jools, also really pleased to hear your news, hope you have a great summer
I am absolutely delighted for you - brilliant, brilliant news - let's hope us Triple Negative types continue to defy the opinions of the medical profession.
Best wishes to you,
What great news. I know that the chemo was getting a bit much.
I am also having a chemo break as although the Xeloda was shrinking the breast tumpour the lung mets have got slightly worse, so am back on tamoxifen and herceptin. Am spending this morning trying to book a last minute holiday.
Enjoy the summer-here's to long evenings, plenty of wine and no chemo!
Very pleased to hear this news...
I think i have told you before, i have a friend with triple negative disease who has had chest wall
spread for many many years, which also has not gone on to spread to major organs, she has
had many chemo options, with large gaps inbetween when things are stable.Not a nice way to
live i know, but...
Your right i think triple negative disease has different forms and is very unpredictable, i have a
appointment coming up soon, being treated at the Christie, and if i have the bottle! im going
to ask if i had basal tumours.
Anway sorry to waffle on....
Enjoy your break and again, im so glad you have had this news.
Jane - what wonderful news! Now I suddenly hope even more that we have a beautiful sunny summer this year. You will be forgiven if you take a break from the forum....but we will definitely miss all your sound advice and informed views!
I don't believe attitude makes a difference, but your realistic approach to things is refreshing in a world of hype!
Hi Jane - really delighted with your news - but please don't stop writing unless you want a complete break from the condition and all reminders of it. We need your voice and views. Who says there's nothing in attitude? I bet yours has frightened the little blighter into submission - it would me!
Hi Jane -- hooray for "stable" -- since my liver & bone mets dx, it's definitely become one of my favourite words! Have a great chemo-break this summer!
I am so pleased for you. May you continue to savour many many more joyous moments,
Enjoy a well deserved chemo break
I'm just so pleased for you, just brilliant news. So glad you are able to have a chemo break and hopefully have a great time during the summer. Let's hope the English weather doesn't let you down (but just jump on plane if it does).
Enjoy, you deserve it!
Hi Jane - what brilliant news - I am so happy for you. Enjoy your chemo break and let's hope the weather is kind so that you can enjoy the summer. Hope you will still keep dropping by the forum as so many of us look forward to your erudite posts.
Jane - so pleased for you. I know how worried you were. Hope your odd cancer carries on being stable. You deserve this chemo break so do all the things you want to do this summer. As you know I had a brill summer last year and it really did me good so hope you can have the same.
Jools - great news for you too. Really pleased for you. Am off to Shanklin tomorrow night with hubby so hope that B and B you recommended is good!!!!
Dawn - really hope you get some good news soon - you've really been through it lately
