I have been following these posts, but this is the first time I’ve posted anything. I was diagnosed in Jan 2017 with MBC. My Mets are to the sternum, spine, pelvis and hip, with two spots on my liver and two on my skull. I’ve had what some consider a miraculous recovery when my pet scan last April showed the main tumors gone. I take femara and Ibrance daily. I’m due for another scan soon.
My issue is that I find I am avoiding people since I cannot talk about my cancer without getting upset and crying. It’s very uncomfortable for me when someone asks how I am doing. I’m constipated, nauseous, bloated and terrified, but I don’t want to talk or even think about it. I definitely don’t want pity. Is anyone else dealing with this?
