    Oh No (Cancer is back/Recurred ): After 5 and a half years my breast cancer is back... in my neck, chest and right lung, I’m on ibrance & fasoladex

      I was just diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in my liver and bones 3 yrs after initial breast cancer that resulted in mastectomy. I’m so mad. Dr wants to start chemo immediately, but I haven’t even had time to process or think about 2nd opinion.

      Yes I am mad too! I am on targeted therapy & hormone shots ... Ibrance and fasoladex... some side effects but mostly alright. My lymphadema arm is acting up so now I’ve added PT to all my medical appointments!
      I’ve finally healed from my lung biopsy, 5 weeks ago!
      I feel like I have sooo many decisions to make. I get frozen. And such a range of emotions. People either can’t understand why I so far look pretty normal or they give me their ideas why this has happened to me and then advice I don’t want!
      I’d like to hear from others with MBC! What are your struggles and hopes, fears and joys? Please share with me!

    Question: Life after Cancer

    I too started on Tamoxifen the first of January and had many bad side effects and stopped taking it after 3 weeks...just wondering what your plan now is? Other drugs or natural supplements, dietary route? I am unsure...onco wants to do blood work in early February and then come up with a new plan...pretty sure it will be include meds...
