I am new to the network and have metastasis
Posted on behalf of JLea
I am new to the network. I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in 2016. I had a double mastectomy and axillary clearance and chemo. Six months ago I was found to have mets in my bones. Including skull, spine down to T10, scapulae, ribs, sternum, pelvis and femoral head. So quite extensive. I’m on Palbociclib and Letrozole. As Palbociclib is a 3 week cycle with one week off. The bone pain builds up over the 3 weeks, particularly in skull and spine, as my entire skull is riddled with mets.
Has anyone got a similar diagnosis? I have major depression and feel very bleak about my prognosis.
