it will be four years tomorrow since my secondary diagnosis - which was six weeks after primary dx.
had mets in skin, spine and peritoneal area.
was put on Letrozole and have been stable ever since. My TMs fell from 418 to around 40 in six months and have stayed around that ever since......the one skin met was removed and never recurred. The 'shadows' in the peritoneal area are no longer showing and bone mets have either reduced or stayed stable.
at the time I was devastated - but now try to live for the day.
onc said that 2-3 years was the 'usual' prognosis
I really hope that this will help/inspire/comfort some of you who are recently diagnosed. I remember the anxiety and fear.
