Diagnosed in Dec. 2013, surgery March 2014. 16 rounds of chemo, 4 of which were the red devil, 34 radiation treatment's. Finished up the week before Thanksgiving. Saw my oncologist & radiologist as recommended. Every pain, weird feeling I had I contacted my oncologist (per his request). Around March 2017 started to have issues with back pain & I didn't see my oncologist until Aug. We had purchased a new mattress & we thought it was from that. Finally got into see the doctor & his whole expression changed when I told him about the pain. Immediately I was scheduled for the scans. Thats when he found the breast cancer had metastasized into the bone in the spine. All my vital organs were fine, head scan (I also get dizzy) was clean. He stopped my femarra, since it proved that didn't work for me. Sept. I was put on Ibrance 125mg. with the monthly Xgeva & Faslodex injections. I just had my first scan after being on the Ibrance for 4 cycles & it showed the cancer is "controlled" not in remission, but controlled. Not sure what that means but will get more info when I see my Onc. next week. Not sure how long it takes for this medication to "kick-in" not sure what the outcome will be. I was told this will be a long journey & I most likely will end up "somewhere down the road" on chemo. I feel good, except for the thinning hair & feeling tired all the time, no other complaints. In fact the arthritis I have in my hands feel's good from the shots for the bones I get. Is this the miracle drug? Will I live to see my granddaughter (1-yr old) grow up? Will I get to enjoy life with my husband, who has extended working passed retirement age to keep the good insurance? I stay positive, but seriously I'm pretty numb inside like it hasn't hit me yet!
