Hi everyone, I will be starting eribulin next week (my third time of having intravenous chemo) and wondered what to expect side-effect-wise, this time round? The usual? Hair loss, fatigue, nausea?? I was diagnosed in 2018 with secondary breast cancer initially spread to my lymphnodes and vertebrae, had the red chemo(can never remember its name!), docetaxel & radiotherapy. Got put on tamoxifen and letrozole after treatment and was 7mths in remission until 2019 the cancer came back in the lymphglands inbetween my lungs; had palbociclib tablets and gosserelin until 2020 when the cancer came back in my liver (and sternum/another vertebrae); had paclitaxel, then that stopped working and was put on capecitabine tablets from last Sept to today. Have just been told that those have stopped working on the liver only - they’re working a treat on the bones, which is confusing! So that’s my cancer journey so far - anyone else with similar diagnosis and/or is currently on eribulin? Thanks! Shelley

Hi, I’m Shelley and I’m new here. Was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer Jan 2018 - had 7 cycles of AC/T & Docetaxel, 15 sessions of radiotherapy then tamoxifen and hormone injections. Last year cancerous cells were found on my lymphglands and I am currently on palbociclib & letrozole. Made it to 2020 though, woo! During my cancer journey I have struggled to find a support group that fits so I’ve decided to start my own one - if there’s anyone under 40 who are looking to meet and chat through our troubles, share our stories and be inspired, please let me know!
