    Polgara, thank you for the thoughts, I too am prayer for you, let me know when you have the final diagnoses of your breast cancer. Sounds like you are ahead of the game, I being diagnosed in December, am just now reaching out more and more to understand, and face the truth of what I have, and I think it hard because I don't look different, I don't look sick, but I feel it. If you have young children, I do understand, my daughter and Grandbaby live with me, and I was their only source of income, she has recently got a job, but my Grandbaby she is 2, and she always wanted me to give her a bath, to play, ect, I love it, and I do it, I can get down on the floor ok, its the getting up. : ) Keep me informed of your progress, and God Bless and Comfort you through your journey.

    Hi Re, Dave suggested I read your wall, that you truly are an inspiration, and he was right. I was diagnosed in December 2011 with invasive lobular carsinoma, stage iV, it has spread to my liver, and lungs, thank God it did not go to my bones, or brain. I am taking Arimidex daily, and flasodex shot once a month. I just started the hormone treatment in March, and it doesn't take long for it to start effecting your joints, that is for sure. So far so good, except the tumors on my liver are not responding to the hormone treatment, so August 1st I go for my 4th CT Scan, and will get the results August 8th. So if it is still not responding he is going to change my meds... oh boy another set of side effects to deal with. Thank you for sharing your journey, you have really gone through quite a bit, and I'm just a baby in all of this. I think I still want to deny I am sick, who has time to be sick. Well thank you again.

      Sounds like your doctors are on top of things which is what you want, that said never hesitate to ask why they are choosing one course of action over another as it is important that we too understand what and why we are getting the treatment plan set up for us. Hang in there and remember to keep fighting and to be kind to yourself, when you are tired rest whatever else there is to do can wait till you have gotten the rest you need. I wish you all the best!

      Since stage IV breast cancer of any type indicates metastatic cancer to other locations, whether it started out as ductal or lobular breast cancer really isn't a significant difference in terms of treatment.. I think if you search for individuals or information on metastatic or stage IV breast cancer you will will find a lot.

      Thank you nancyjac, I did not know that, everything I have read and talked to people about there seems to be a difference, but at this point I would just like to talk with someone who has had stage IV breast cancer for a while and how they are doing.
