I’m new here

I was diagnosed in April of 2011 with metastatic Breast Cancer. I am being treated at Sloan Kettering in NYC. My metastasis had spread to lymph nodes, spine, and bone. I was treated with hormonal anti estrogen meds and participated in three clinical trials. No drama until spring of 2016 when I began to have severe side effects from my current meds. My oncologist addressed this and things stabilized until this past spring. I had a severe attack of spinal stenosis in the vertebrae where my tumor is. I had emergency spinal surgery as I couldn’t walk without extreme pain. I’m recovering now and had to quit my full time job. I can no longer take the stress of commuting and working full time. I’d love to connect with others who are stage IV metastatic Breast Cancer warriors like myself.

Hi HarrietTheSpy, welcome and thank you for sharing your story. If you're looking to connect with metastatic patients, we actually have a board specifically for women with stage IV breast cancer (this page is for early stage breast cancer community).

Much like this board, you'll find a supportive group of people who've been where you are. You can find the metastatic community here: healthunlocked.com/share-me...

Look forward to posting with you!
