Hi all. I have been diagnosed with st4 breast cancer going to the t4 vertebrae. This was found after I had been found to have a pathological fracture of the back. This has now travelled to my t3. My t4 has collapsed and the tumor is sitting very close to the spinal cord.The neurologist wants the oncologist to try to shrink the tumor as it hasn't got a lot of room. The pain is being treated with fairly high drugs and the cancer is undergoing hormone treatment. I already have had palliative radiation on the spine which may or may not have worked. The tumor in the back hasn't got smaller but it hasn't grown either. Because the cancer has now gone to the t3, they say that bone is compromised so a spinal fusion (in the future) would have to go from t2 to t5. Chemo is my next option. Was just wondering if anyone else has had the fractures in the back happen before diagnosis. I have read of many having treatment to stop this happening but hoping someone has some positive news for me. Thank you
