Hi everyone, Im so glad I've come across this forum. There are so many inspirational and positive stories.
I'm in the UK and very new to all this and started on Leterozole and Ibrance 2 weeks ago. Spread is to spine liver lungs and lymph nodes in chest and neck.
I have a few questions, but the first one is what are the tumer markers everyone talks about, is it info they get from bloods and what should I be asking? Is this something used more in America?
Also Ive had a lot of pain in my breastbone/neck/left shoulder - could this be a side effect. Im so worried its mets but previously (recently) had an MRI so wouldnt that have shown up?
Doing ok on Ibrance - no tummy troubles so far - but the nodes in my neck seem to have gotten bigger. Did anyone else find this?
Sorry for all the questions, its all so new and scary. Reading on here about people being treated for 11 years makes my heart burst with joy.
Thanks for reading.
Take care everyone.
