    After my post op scan I still have one tumor in abdomen that was left as it it attached to the psoas muscle. He got as close as he could but was afraid of damaging the muscle. I also have two new tumors in my left lung & lump on my thigh which had MRI. I begin chemo Eribulin next Tuesday for 3 cycles. Hopefully this will work as previous 3 types of chemo have not.

    Side Effects: Through all of the side effects of the chemo, the disappointment every time they didn't work, the surgeries, and knowing it will recurr even after all this I ended up on Welbutrin.

    Procedure or Surgery (Surgery): These treatments didn't work and all tumors grew. Decision made to remove mass from abdomen first. This was done between chemo types. The scan after this surgery showed he missed one tumor in the abdomen. I then did the Gemzar treatments but that didn't work either. They decided the lung surgery should be done first. They did one lung at a time about 5 weeks apart then they removed from the abdomen 4 months later.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Doxo didn't work. Switched to Gemzar and taxotere. Had thinning of hair before but lost so much this time I buzzed my head and wore caps and scarves.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Ibrance did nothing. Tried Doxorubicin with Lartruvo. First dose burned my arm vein. Had port installed before second dose.
