Re: Metastases to the liver.

Hi Cheryl

I too am recently diagnosed with MBC in last few of weeks, it’s in my spine, pelvis & liver. I had breast cancer 4 years ago, surgery, radiotherapy & been on letrozole ever since but it’s obviously not worked.  I’ve had a bone scan & I had a liver biopsy last week to determine its ER+ then pending results I can hopefully start the treatment suggested but I would be really interested to hear  how you get on & what treatment your offered.

keep us updated & take care

Re: Metastases to the liver.

Hi Mary

Thanks so much for replying, which when reading has made me feel less anxious.  I'll be so glad when treatment starts..... I'll let you know what they say at my referral.

So glad it's going okay for you.

 

Take care

Re: Metastases to the liver.

Hi Cheryl

sorry to hear your news! I am a year on from the same diagnosis, although I also have multiple bone mets too. Initially I was put on paclitaxel as my liver enzymes were high; it stabilised things and I have been on pablociclib and letrozole for eight months now. This has reduced the tumours a bit and I have been able to live a pretty normal life, but of course everyone responds differently! I feel much better than I did before treatment started for sure! 
Good luck with your treatment plan; secondary breast cancer may not be curable, but it is treatable.

Metastases to the liver.

Hi all,

I have been given my scan results today which show appearance suspicious for metastases to the liver.  I was diagnosed in January 2016 with breast cancer, oestrogen receptor positive, chemo, radiotherapy and Anastrozole. 

Been given a high priority referral to the Q E Hospital in Birmingham as lesions spread throughout the liver.

I would like to hear from anyone newly diagnosed with breast cancer met to the liver or anyone already gone through treatment.  I know there is no cure but different types of treatment available to slow the cancer down.

I have been preparing myself for the prognosis, so wasn't totally shocked with the results, but even so, I feel in a strange place at the moment and surreal.

Be great to get other people's experience.

 

Take care
