Hi....I was diagnosed with metatastic breast cancer in Sept of 2015. I had chemo followed by a series of hormone based cancer drugs. I am currently on Afinitor/Aromasin. At my monthly visit on Friday, I was shocked when my onc suggested that it would be a good time to repeat chemo. She said she likes to periodically repeat the chemo to "reset things". Like most of you probaby feel, I thought chemo was pretty much related to death. Horrible stuff and it took away basically 4 months of my life. 2 months of chemo and 2 months of slowly recovering. She is suggesting at this point but I wondered if anyone else has gone through a second round of chemo for this reason. She says I still have a ton of cancer fighting medicines left but she still would like to do this?
Keep strong everyone! This journey is certainly not easy but I am surprised to be here and healthy 3 years later Healthy being a very relative term. LOL
