My name is Jules. I found out I had breast cancer in sept 17, I had 6 rounds of chemo, docetaxol and EC which shrunk the tumour, then I had a therapeutic mammoplasty and lymph node removal. A Routine CT scan followed and then came the news in March that it had moved to my bones, spine, pelvis, hips. It’s been a struggle to accept the news, went through all the normal emotions. Made plans, started making memory boxes etc. Now I’m slightly in a better place, I have a very positive Gp and oncologist.
This is my second month on letrozole and Ibrance. All seems fine, I get bad pain at night from letrozole side effects but other than that I’m good. Just hoping this will keep things under control for a while. I really didn’t believe I had a future, but now realise I may be able to keep on living for a while yet.
