My mom has been diagnosed with Metastatic BC with mets to ribs only,
Below is the detailed information of the same :
In 2011 when she was first diagnosed with BC, she underwent a surgery mastetocomy to remove breast and after that she undergone 6 cycles of chemo(FAC).No hormone receptor test was done at that time and after chemo she was taking vitamin tablets only for 5 years.Biopsy results came as : Invasive lobular carcinoma, grade II, micrometastatic deposit in one lymph node.surgery&treatment was done by general surgeon
In jan 2017 we went for a normal check up and it showed lesion in chest wall.we had a surgery at that time to remove the lesion, the biposy report came as : invasive breast carcinoma of no special type, grade II, Tumor is involving skeletal muscle and margin of excision , vascular and perinueral invasion is present. Hormone receptor status : ER + 8/8 , PR 4/8 and HER -
After that she went for 30 cycles of concurrent chemoradiation.followed by PET SCAN which showed some activity in Left sterni(suv - 6).Now our onc. suggested to take femara and also he suggested Ibrance will be a best option.
But its costly, can anyone help or direct me to get those tablets in a discount price like gov,.subsidy or clinical trails etc?
