So I got the results of my scans today and the cancer has not spread out of lymph nodes or chest wall but the lymph nodes are getting larger and more are involved. I see my oncologist on Monday to divise our next plan of action. She is talking IV chemo. I saw her NP today as she had to go out of town unexpectedly. Sucks having to stress over it all weekend. Hope this next treatment works. As long as it works I can deal with the side effects. Been there done that before and I survived. I will this time too I have an 8 year old love of life that depends on me and I have no plans of leaving her.

I am sorry you have to go thru this. Your daughter radiates happiness, and is surely inspiration to deal with whatever treatment is next. I don't have any clinical insights for you, but I wanted you to know I am thinking about you. My scans recently also showed no new lesions, but some "waking up" and a lymph node getting slightly larger. It takes a lot of energy to keep upbeat and get thru these episodes. Hoping your next step in treatment brings good news with your next scans.
You and your beautiful 8 yr old are the picture of happiness and love. I wish the best for you.
My onc has taken me off of Ibrance also after 6 months on it. Cancer spread to sacrum and more spots on my spine. He is putting me on Eribulin which is an infusion drug. Not as harsh as my first, long chemo treatment that we are all familiar with.
30 minute infusion on day 1 and day 8 of a 21 day. I can deal with that!
My onc said this drug works very well for patients that don't do well on Ibrance.
I thought he might go to verzinio, but I think he wants to go with infusions.
Please let me know what your onc's plan is for you when you find out. I know the waiting is torture.
