@Sooty36 you say 8 Yrs, can you tell me.if this is 8yrs since being diagnosed with metastatic bone cancer? I'm 31 just had my second baby. I had breast cancer in 2009 and in May was diagnosed with bone mets. I'm having a hard time with the thought of not seeing my babies grow up. They told me 3-5 yrs....I'm curious if many people are living longer than that.
I had Capecitabine in June and it gave me a mild heart attack! So my Oncologist put me on Venarelbine but a tablet the heart team put me on reacted with that! Just waiting for my bloods to recover so I can restart chemo - this is now into my 8th year of cancer and secondaries - BUT IT WON’T BEAT ME!
You seem to have a very positive attitude. I was the same when it was just in bones as they classed it as chronic illness but unfortunately I have just been told it is now liver. I am devastated to put it mildly. I might feel better once I start new treatment cap.
I first had breast cancer in 2009 followed by a masectomy and was put on tamoxafen then almost exactly a year later I was again found to have it again in my remaining breast followed by a masectomy but this time I had both chemo radiotherapy after that ended I insisted on a scan which was refused twice anyhow I persevered and finally got a bone scan which showed widespread bone cancer then a couple of months ago I was told I had a number of lesions on my liver and am currently back on chemo but am still optomistic and won't let it beat me I have never let it bother me
