My name is Amanda and I was diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma last December after fluke Lumbar MRI findings. Last January after much suspicion, they confirmed on a bone biopsy I was already stage 4...bone mets. I was severely anemic and put through a few bridging therapies before and after my ovaries/tubes were removed. I’ll be 42 in a week.
Three and a half months ago I had to have a femoral nail placed for a pathological hip fracture. I just started Ibrance and Aromasin after we learned the Letrazole/Faslodex combo stopped working and I now have liver mets plus more bone involvement. Starting my second cycle next week if I can get insurance crap figured out. If this doesn’t work it’ll be chemo for me. I refuse to give up living though. Cancer sucks !!!
