I have bone mets. Am Est+ and have cycled through Arimidex, Tamoxifen, Faslodex shots, and am now on Xeloda for almost 2 years. My Oncologist wants to put me on Ibrance with Letrozole next, but a consulting Oncologist says NO! She says that Ibrance is strictly used as 1st or 2nd line drugs in the treatment of breast cancer. She says for me to have Ibrance I would need to be in a clinical trial as the drug hasn't been tested in women who've had 4 previous drugs. Who's right?
Has anyone been on Ibrance after being on 3-4 other drugs or chemo? Thanks! Kats3
