• Invasive lobular breast cancer with mets to bones.

    Invasive lobular breast cancer with mets to bones.

    I did chemo last year, then tumor markers went to 17 for months. Last month it was back up to 62 and I'm scheduled for Whole body bone scan with contrast , brain MRI and CT of belly and chest. I was so freaked I cancelled and rescheduled both tests until my anxiety left some. I've been on Letrozole since getting off chemo and thought that prevented flare ups? I am very scared and worried.

      Freaking out over what tests will tell you can cause a lot of pain for you and others. Worrying about them does not change the results. I gave up watching live sports years ago...why ? because it never changed the outcome and the highlights were on the news. My wife and I have lived with a fatal Cancer for 5 years...we are now entering Hospice. We learned to live those moments we could as if we did not have cancer........my guess is you just got some of that under your belt. So........Get the tests out of the way and keep on living.
