Bone mets


Re: Bone mets

I was diagnosed with bone mets in my ribs, hips and sacrum four years ago.

I was put on letrazole and a chemo tablet which I chose not to take after a couple of months as it made me so tired.

My treatment has kept my situation pretty stable. Letrazole was changed to Fulvrestrant a few months ago.

I tire more easily than I would like but am able to do most of the things that I want to do.

There are many treatment options available which your oncologist will talk you through.

Good luck with your appointment. Thinking positive thoughts for you. xx
