I'm new here

I have secondary breast cancer in my bones and a tumour below my brain that might be sbc - it's too inaccessible to determine what it is. I'm currently taking exemestane, a hormone suppressing drug and denosumab which rebuilds bones. Exemestane gives me pains in joints, particularly hands and feet and spells of fatigue and dizziness but I'm enjoying a more energy filled phase at the moment. I had an MRI scan of my head a couple of weeks ago and will have a bone scan on the 10th with an oncology appointment at the end of the month to find out how things are progressing, or not hopefully.
