I was diagnosed with stage 4 invasive ductal carcinoma after my first mammogram in July 2016. It had spread to my liver & bones. After 3 rounds of Taxol and Gemzar I had a PET scan that revealed the bone mets had healed & liver was very much improved as well as shrinking in breast tumor that was originally 9cm. Finished 3 more rounds of Taxol & Gemzar & had a PET scan. Results showed no bone involvement & no active tumors in my liver. Breast tumor was shrunk more. I was also told that surgery wasn't off the table, but they wanted to see that everything was stable before that. I am now on Femara & Ibrance, but still working on getting the dosage right for Ibrance so I haven't been on that regularly yet.
Has anyone else gone through starting up with Ibrance & having counts drop?
