    Stage 4 Metastisize Breast Cancer Estrogen fueled not herceptin

    I heard about a new treatment out there for stage 4 breast cancer with bone and lung involvement. Right now since October I have been on Fasoldex and Zometa once a month. My markers are only rising about 20 to 25 pts each month I am now at about 250 for Ca27-29 and 263 for Ca-15. My question is about a new treatment with Afinitor and Aromasin together not sure if this is a infusion or injection. But whould like to know if anyone out there has tried this combo and if it is helping. I heard there are side effects for the first month or two. Sore mouth dryness sores and rash but would like to hear about someone who has been trying it more than a month or two.

      I think I'm in the same condition. I'm on Zometa and Lupron and Tamoxifin. I am also interested in new options. I forgot to ask at my last visit. I will definately bring it up next month. It would be nice to hear of any personal experiences.

      I will be following your question. I am Stage 4 also with lung and bone involvement. I am receiving Fasoldex and Herceptin at this point. Best of luck to you.

      I do afinitor with tamoxifen - still do zometa once a month - afinitor has kept my cancer at bay and shows some improvement - which has never happened. little side effects too. I have been on it 5 months.

      Carter 4 I would like to talk to you further on your treatment if you do not mind. Were you on Fasodex with Zometa before this treatment? Are you stage 4 metatastic Breast Cancer without HER2 but Estrogen fueled? Maybe we can communitcate one on one if you are okay with that I will ask how we can do that with this system. Thank you so much for your comments looking forward to hearing more from you.
