I am new to this site. Looking for support and answers. I was diagnosed stage one, no lymph node involvement and a low aggression oncotype score in 2012. Visited Sloan Kettering in NYC. Everything was in my favor to be 100 percent cured. Post menopausal, very tiny tumor, Er Pr positive. Negative Her 2. A had a lumpectomy followed by radiation.
4.5 years later, a non productive cough... more like a “tickle” led to scans that revealed I had stage 4 metastatic breast cancer throughout both lungs and on a rib.
I have been given hope instead of a death sentence. I am responding beautifully to IBRANCE and Letrozole. I am positive for the most part, some days I’m down. I am working full time as a nurse educator and tolerating the meds. Just finished my third round and tumors are 50 percent decreased.
Anyone else with lung involvement?
Sloan said this never should have happened “only God knows why.”
I also found a retreat I’m going to if anyone is interested. For woman with cancer, 2 nights, on the ocean. 100 percent free of charge. Mary’s Place by the Sea. Ocean Grove NJ.
