N. E. D. on Ibrance

I truly appreciate the information and sharing on this page. I had cancer 12 years ago,, had a double mastectomy, removed the sential node. In October of 2017 I found a pea-sized lump under my right arm. Biopsy showed breast cancer had returned. Scan showed breast cancer in my liver, metastatic. My oncologist started me on ibrance and letrozole. The cost of the ibrance is terrible, but I decided to take it. I had a scan 2 weeks ago and was very surprised to find out that I was nearly in remission. They will not say remission they only say no evidence. I have to continue on ibrance to stop any relapse. I give credit to this near miracle in my life to a huge number of people praying, a good diet, some exercise, and CBD oil. I pray for all of you.

My copay was over $1000.00 and the drug company pays that so I do not pay anything. I know I had to qualify. I would ask your doctor's office as mine was the one that started the process. That is great news about your scan!

Hello, pinkeins!

Your story is so similar to mine. I was diagnosed with BC in October 2000. No evidence in 3 sentinel nodes that were removed. I still opted for double mastectomy, due to the young ages of my children (7 and 10). Seventeen years later (November 2017) I discovered small lump in my right armpit and MBC subsequently found in spine and one pelvic bone. My protocol since that time has been ibrance, letrozole, and a monthly injection of xgeva.

I would strongly suggest that you talk to your oncologist about getting your ibrance covered by Pfizer (the manufacturer of the drug.) I just talked to mine about the cost this past month and she was floored that I had ever paid ANYTHING for the drug. She said that Pfizer is extremely accommodating in its help to women with MBC. They have an online application to get you started; you can deliver this to your oncologist (it requires his/her signature) and get the process started. Good luck with this! XO Linda in Seattle

Hi my name is Ewa. My friend just started her treatment with Ibrance+letrozole. Are you still on it or they stop it and started something else?
