Re: Meltdown

Angiepop, I think almost all of us freak out when we find out its back! Mine came back when I was 51 and after 10 years. In 2005 I found out it had set up camp in my lungs and lymph nodes. It's now 13 years later! I work PT, have some side effects and am a little slower at accomplishing chores. I've had constant treatment since 2005. I've had chemo, radiation and hormonal therapy. 

 

Once you get a POA (plan of action) you will feel better.  It will get better! FF

Hi Angie I felt exactly the same , mine has come back after 18 years in remission, I was devastated, still can’t believe it after all this time .Am on hormone treatment, and am doing ok , been on it 6 months, results are promising.I think you are still in shock like I was , once you start treatment, it will get easier xx

Re: Meltdown

I was diagnosed with bone mets in March. I’m 53. It’s such a shock and you think you’re going to die immediately. I’m on Anastrolzole. Zometa and Ibrance. It’s not easy but I went back to work full time after two weeks to adjust and am enjoying work. When you’ve got a treatment plan which you understand you’ll feel better. Thinking of you Anne

Meltdown

Hi

I've reached the stage in limbo where I feel all is lost and I can't stop crying. I was told I had deposits on my spine last weds and I'm going to see once on Tuesday. I've had MX, chemo, rads and hormone therapy in. 2013. I feel I should be equipped to cope this time but it seems worse and I'm losing my grip on rational thought. They already told me I won't get chemo but two tablets as treatment , one being a hormone therapy for post menopausal? Anastrozole maybe? Anyway, you don't listen to everything when you're given the news do you, so  I think they said rads but didn't think that was definate. I spent all of Friday night in meltdown mode and now its started again. I'm 54. Partner at work today, I think I've had too much time to actually  think. I'm expecting to have died by teatime, that's how I'm feeling just now.
