I’d like to join this thread. Struggling a wee bit navigating the thread though. I have 2 confirmed mets in skull and spine but still don’t have any treatment plan. The mets have been there since July but it has been slow getting scan and then bone biopsy. Currently on letrosole only but I’ve got new pain in cervical spine so feel things are progressing. I’m seeing oncologist on Thursday and hope they have a treatment plan established. My worry is that the CT scan I had several weeks ago is already out of date. Hoping things don’t escalate too quickly but feeling quite fearful due to new pain in cervical spine.

Hi Longj007,I am 78 in May and found my lump on my 77th birthday last May,I had Lobular BC was given Femara to shrink the tumour and then had a Mastectomy and node removal in August,36 nodes removed 28 were positive,I had to push for chemo because of my age,I wanted to throw everything at it including chewing the altar rails at my local Parish Church.Chemo was pretty horrible although my dosage was only at 80% strength,3 weeks after chemo I had Radiotherapy every day for 5 weeks.At the Radiotherapy hospital I becames friends with several other patients ,3 of them there daily were 91,88,and 76 respectively,we all became quite proud of being the golden oldies in our range of elegant wigs.throughout this experience the care given by all medical staff has been excellent,except when I had to push for Chemotherapy,but even then I didnt have to push too hard.These forums are amazing in support,I belong to the group Starting chemo in August, and we are meeting up with each other in April,there is a thread for post menopausal women.
Love and Light xx Mavis
