    it really would be nice to seperate the metastaic breat cancer survivors from the cured or in remission survivors. I saw the difference when I initally put in my diagnosis, but when people to follow/search poped up it was a lot of breast cancer survivors who not really to the point where I am at. It really can't be encouraging for them to read my story, and makes me a bit sad that i can't be them, who still have the "cure" potential.

    Radiation (External radiation ): in summer of 2011 had another round of radiation. This on e to my spine. Idea was to treat pain and maybe stop some progression, because my spine is pretty much covered. This was painless, and help with the pain. However, I lost a bunch of weight because the reflux and neasuea, could not eat without serious pain. happened to discover that percotte actually helped with this pain as much as the reflux meds and zofran. Did not get really bad untillast two weeks, but they were miserable, lasted about two weeks after complete. Helped pain a lot until august, when I had scan for a pain in my upper back that showd more progression up to the top of my spine. At that point had to go off hormonals. to do research trial, had to do a teo week wash with not trearment at all. I know hormonals were doing something, because after two weeks without I was more miserable than I had ever beeen, lots of pain in back and hips. very depressed. It took quite a while (6 weeks ) on new regime with anti depressants and ritilan to help keep me awake durring day to return me to a slower form of mormal than I had been all summer
