So glad to have found this site! I've been looking for several days, with some really depressing outcomes.
I was diagnosed with BC in April 2013 at the age of 46. Underwent bilateral mastectomy, identified as IIIA, 3 of 9 lymph nodes positive, ER and PR +, HER2 -. Following my mastectomy, had 6 rounds of chemo -TAC, then 28 sessions of radiation. For the past, almost 4 years feeling very good until this past April while working out had a sudden onset of pelvic and left hip pain. Thought it was an orthopedic type injury, so gave it time to heal. Unfortunately, shortly after this "injury" I got cellulitis of my breast implants, this was treated successful with oral antibiotics. In August, had to have a hysterectomy due to break through bleeding. Following my recovery, I was still having pelvic and left hip pain, ended up having an MRI that showed a stress fracture in my pelvis. Didn't think much of it, increased my protein, decreased my exercise and was starting to feel better. In November, saw my oncologist for my routine 6 month check up, blood work revealed significantly elevated tumor markers compared to the ones in April. In December, had a PET scan that revealed lesions in my pelvic region and some in my femur. It's been a world wind since then, many doctors, more scans and labs - all confirming bone mets into my pelvis, femur.
Last Saturday started on Ibrance! Tolerating ok, just a little nausea on and off during the day. Also fatigue, however, not sure if that's from he Ibrance or just the emotion of this entire process.
Again, SO glad to find this group and look forward to communicating and supporting everyone.
