Triple Negative Metastatic Lung
I was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer stage three in Match 2017. I underwent chemo, a lumpectomy and radiation followed by a course of captectabine. I had a reoccurrence in April this year and I was diagnosed stage four with spread to lymph nodes in the mediastinum and right pleural. The cancer has also invaded the skin of my right breast which has resulted in a painful skin condition. I have had 7 chemo’s and self funded Keytruda (immunotherapy). The Ketruyda made me very unwell and seemed to stimulate disease progression. I now have lymphangitis carcinomatosis in my left lung and a pleural effusion in the right. Have had effusion drained twice but it comes straight back. I also now have a liver met. I am on a high steroid dose which keeps me mobile short distances but some days I require oxygen which I have at home. I have just finished my first round of a combo of avastin and a chemo drug navelbine. I am 42 years old and I have two young children. Although recently place under palliative care I will never give up and my Oncoligist is on board with this. I am looking to connect with anyone who can provide me with a positive story in a similar situation as some days I find it hard to find hope which is what has kept me going through all of my treatments. Thank you.
