Stage 4 recurrence

Hi everyone. I wondered if there is anyone else out there with secondary bc. I was re diagnosed April 2013. I've had radiotherapy and now just taking anastrazole and keeping really well. I have to pinch myself sometimes because I can't believe/accept that I do have this nasty disease. So far I'm not debilitated in anyway. Hope this helps anyone else out there.

Hi there thank you for sharing your story and for being honest and positive x can I ask when did you have your first breast cancer ? Don't think that I am being intrusive xxx

Not intrusive at all :)). I was diagnosed first time 2006 and had all the usual treatment then 7 yrs later the bastard was back 😢

Hi, I imagine that you have your bone density checked every two years or so because of anastrozole.

Wishing you all the best in continuing to keep well!

Keep doing weight-bearing exercises. They should help in keeping the bone density in check.
