    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Hormone therapy): Ibrance 175mg and letrozole - some mouth sores and fatigue that got better as the days went by. White blood count was too low, though. Switching to 100mg Ibrance.

      my dentist gave me capsule of antibiodic, which I open in a teaspoon of water and dab on the sores! It has been very helpful! You might ask your dentist.

      I have mets to the bone. In many spots. With ibrance and Femara, so far i am keeping it from getting worse. With your dr's care and getting regular tests, and right meds, my hope is you can keep it from getting worse. So sorry, we are all here for you.

      A journal is a great tool for writing what is happening within your own mind and heart. Although I haven't faced your personal issue, I was witness to my sister's inability to conceive. I had always hoped that I might be able to bear a child for her but she wouldn't hear of it.
