      Prayers welcome, though I’m not religious! The stories of life after stage IV are heartening, I hope I’m one of those lucky ones!

      Seeing how many of us with Srage 4 are living way past predicted times is so encouraging! Gives me great hope.

      Oh lujos, I'm so sorry to read your news. I hope you'll soon have a treatment plan - sitting around waiting, for me, is the hardest of all.

      I'm another Stage IV survivor. I was given 4 months back in October 2012 and I'm still here, doing well.

    Oh No: CT shows spread to bones, liver and possibly pancreas.

      Wow. This is the stuff we have hanging over our heads but hope we never hear. You have certainly received life shattering news. But... They have amazing treatments theses days. Have you talked with your oncologist about prognosis?

      @lujos, I am so sorry to hear this. Were you having problems or was it found with a routine scan? Do you have any sort of plan yet? Please keep us posted on how you are doing. I am sending good thought and prayers your way. Take care.

    Hey Debbie, hope you are well?

    Have some bad news from my CT results yesterday, the cancer has spread to bones and liver. What a bummer. Last CT ten months ago was clear, so I guess this is a pretty aggressive one.

      Thanks, Debbie. The pancreas is also involved (which is very rare),so they need to biopsy that first to determine if is a bc secondary or a new primary, because the treatment would be different. So I’m just waiting and worrying at the moment!

      Glad you are ok, surely you’re off the tamoxifen soon?

      Another 5 years on Tamoxifen - it’s really horrible
      Try not to worry - easier said than done I know .
      When are you having the biopsy ?

      Dunno, no date yet. Hopefully soon, as this is an aggressive XXX!

      5 more years seems so long when you’re looking down the barrel of it, but with any luck it will smooth out... x x
