    How is it going on Ibrance? I start next week. Is it costly? What should I expect for my first week?

      Thank you so much for your reply. I have been nervous to take it. I am also Stage IV with mets to the bone and liver. I have been on Xeloda and had to take 4 pills in the morning and 4 at night for one week on and one week off. I did pretty well on it but my tumor markers are increasing and my PET scan shows that these little buggers are active again. I have had trouble with a rib that keeps breaking. I'm a first grade teacher and worry about them getting me sick too while my immune system is taking a hit. My own three children are 22-19-16 so they don't get me sick as often. Do you take any supplements like airborne to keep your immune system up?

      Hi Connie, wow you are a real Wonder Woman being a first grade teacher. Be sure to get those blood tests for you white blood cell count as you do not want to get an infection. I carry plenty of those antiseptic wipes and use them all day. As a teacher, you will need to watch your interaction with anyone you know that is sick. I do not take suppliements, but put that question to this group and the majority feedback was, talk to your doctor as you are taking meds that might interfere with supplements. I am not sure if airborne would be a problem but ask your DR. I will say, I am having a positive experience with Ibrance NOW, 12 weeks later. I feel much better and have more energy. My ribs were hurting me in front and now I have no pain in that area. Hope my PEt scan shows some improvement March 7th! I will let you know. Hang in there with Ibrance. Give it a chance.

      Just in general make sure you stay hydrated.

      This means lots of water but also juicy foods.

      You are in luck as it is melon season. Eat!!

      Best wishes
