      I like to hear when others take it upon themselves to try a new drug. I think it's smart to do all you can to keep cancer at bay and it also paves the way for others. Maybe someone will read your question and ask their doc about it.

      It always disturbs me to find the best information about something new on an investment site despite already knowing that the best way to trace technology is to "follow the money".

      This self disturbance began when I noticed two hurricances tracking near exactly within 2 miles of each other and continued when one got weaker over water and another stronger over land.

      So to see the most information on a new drug, and a twisted variant on use which is not at all seemingly good for the patient has me to believe that lives and the quality thereof dont much matter to investment brokers who only care about their very own selves and seem to completely lack compassion or empathy.

      I've not heard of this drug. Now, I'm on an infusion of Herceptin every 3 weeks. Every 3 weeks, I take a 2 week round of Xeloda. My nodule has been stable for 6 months. Having Stage IV, Metastatic BC, this may be a drug that I can't tolerate or work. Thanks for the info. I'll keep all of this in mind if I need to take this.

      I'm nearly 3 years out from the back flap on my left breast. I too had skin problems following my radiation (I did not to chemo). Really, after going through the mastectomy, the recovery following this was much the same. I had two drains and have a long scar that runs from just under my left armpit to about mid-back (I call it my shark bite). I'm not crazy with the results. I had an implant put in and it now is smaller than my right, healthy breast. So I still wear a prothesis (sp). Every now and then I get some minor pain, because it is a back muscle they use, but that's about it.

      I had my surgery 9 days ago. It was pretty painful, but mainly itches now, and the three drains are super irritating! There wasn’t enough healthy skin for an implant, so I have an expander, and my surgeon said he will do a reduction on my healthy breast so they match, though that will be a long time from now. It has been a lot to go through, but already it looks so much better than the ugly scar that was there before that I’m glad I did it.

      I am so glad it well. Prayers for healing. Remember to follow dr orders, drink lots of water and eat plenty of protein for healing.
