Oh Sharon.
I'm so sorry to hear this as you have done the chemo recently too.
Is there another hormonal you can try ? Or what options do you have now ?
Has oncologist offered you other treatments or even a clinical trial with ibrance maybe.
Keep posting here ..we are all here to help as you must be feeling so downhearted .
Hope you have settled your daughter into her new flat and try not to over do things ..easy said I know.
Sending you mega hugs xxxxx

Hi Carolyn,
Very muggy weather here and not very pleasant indoors, unless you have air conditioning. So , unfortunately, I'm forced to go out shopping today. Well that's my excuse anyway. 😁 xxx

Hiya Barton.
Put the old stuff on gumtree ..inundated with replies . Put it all on too cheap I think. Tried to put a fair second hand price on.
Weather getting on my nerves as I was going to do a load of washing .never mind plants and grass need watering.

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hallo Artygirl Even with all the technology available it seems there can always be uncertainty. I had a bone biopsy taken from my pelvis last autumn and was already on exemestane because of what was probably my problem. But then in June my onc just happened to mention that the biopsy results had not been all that conclusive. An MRI scan showed I also have something in my skull and a tumour in a really inaccesible place below my brain which might be bc or something else but they can't tell because a biopsy would be too invasive. So we live with uncertainty. Anyway I went to the Port Eliot festival in Cornwall this weekend and had a great time

Hi Funnyface
Not yet. I guess if MRI scan was inconclusive they might. Are MRIs ever inconclusive? All a bit of mystery to me who hasn't a scientific bone in her body!!

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Artygirl, I hope they figure it out soon. Did they biopsy it? I can remember when they biopsied my lung there was some confusion. They had to send it out for more staining, and it took a couple weeks. Good luck! FF

Thanks Carolyn - good plan! X

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Stresshead, I'm OK! Just that bone met added to the confusion of why are my legs weak. I'm off prednisone now, so if that was part of the problem it's gone. If it's because of my knees and inactivity, I've begun some physical therapy to combat it. If it's the chemo, hoping the therapy  combat that too. Hoping to see a difference in strength in a few weeks. My energy is less without the steroid, but again counting on time and exercise to help that! Maybe no steroids and exercise will help the weight too! 

 

Bad day at work yesterday! Thankful it's Saturday! I work at a senior center. The senior center is a place for seniors to come hang out. It is open 9-3 MTWTF. There is fine art class, exercise, yoga, ti chi, dancing, bingo, poker, entertainment, etc. It Is always busy. Most of them are very sweet and lovely, but a few can be real pips! Enjoy your weekend ladies. I'm working on some ideas for a pirate murder mystery for the center!

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Artygirl
All the technology and some things are still in doubt so all you can do is wait and see.
Fingers crossed it won't be a met ..
It's good they are double checking and it sounds like you are in good hands.
In the meantime enjoy your weekend and try to relax!!

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Morning everyone
Really nice to read your chatty thread.
Have been really struggling since abnormal spot found on pelvis two weeks ago. Picked up on both bone scan and ct scan but inconclusive. An now awaiting results of an MRI. Assuming it is a met - ON seemed pessimistic although when we left her office said she 'was sitting on the fence'. Very confused and anxious. Anyone else had a similar scan experience. Thanks Ladies.

Think a little nap later will b involved .
Enjoy yr weekend everyone.

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Good morning ladies, well it looks like it's shaping up to be a nice day here today!
Hi Julz, sounds like you had a lovely time in the lakes, it's my most favourite place to be! We were there a few weeks ago, we always stay in Bowness but we also have a ride into either Ambleside, Kendal or Lancaster. It's roughly around an hour and 20 minutes from Manchester so it's not too far to drive. Well done you for doing that climb, I bet you felt amazing afterwards!
Nicky, thanks for the PM tip.
Marie 123, hope you have a fab day at your daughters wedding, πŸ‘°you must post some pics!!
Well I slept rubbish last night! But at least the sun is shining so that should keep me going πŸ˜†

Hi Janette

Just seen your post to Marie and I'm wondering if you put an emoji, or two, in your PM? A while back I couldn't send PM's even though I had sent them to the person before. By a process of elimination the digital team from BCC suggested this was the problem - and it was 😊 Emoji's on the main, public, forum are OK as you can see.

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Janette, what fantastic news...keep celebrating.

Funnyface...hope you are feeling a little brighter now. I know its a worry but your scan could have shown a lot more so try and be strong...like Carolyn says yo have coped so well for so long....

Carolyn..i wish i had your sense of humour...your 'tissue' incident had me in fits.

Hope everyone is as well as can be and sorry if i've missed anyone. xx

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Bit behind on this thread so forgive me.....Andrea what fantastic news...you were right to share it! I'm sure the fuzzy head the day after was worth it!!

Avrelia....sorry you have had to join us. I had fec as my first treatment for primary sb and was qite ill on it but i had an antisickness drug called aprepitant and i had injections for neutropenia so there is stff out there if you should need it. I found losing my hair very hard (been through it twice now and looks like a 3rd time may be round the corner) but , although i tried, couldnt face the cold cap after my first attempt, although many ladies find it ok. You will get through it though and hopefully have success. Keep posting. x

we are a couple of wimps arnt we ?? When I saw Oncologist six weeks ago .. and he said stable scan etc -- I burst out crying and he produced a box of tissues from no where and do you know what I thought .. ugh Tesco  own brand .. surely I deserve some nice soft aloe vera ones or perfume ones after all the stress !!

 

What am I like ?

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hi Carolyn, no I don't see scans etc, really do not want to either!  I know I have cancer and that is all the info I want thank you very much,  that and my stable results every 3 months is enough for me.  I know some ladies want to know all that's going on and fair play to them but it's not for me!  No she didn't elaborate on the hole and I didn't either,  I think she knows I'm a stress head so keeps thinks brief. 

Well dropped Heidi off at the "hairdressers "she wasn't very happy so think she will be a sulky pooch when we pick her up!!

Hugs Janette xxxx

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Hiya Jeanette
Thanks for the info. Do u look at yr scans ? I don't as I'm a wimp. My October one last year scared me so I don't look now !! Did the oncologist say the hip hole was repairing with the denosumab as that is the idea of it ..I think.
I had a hole in femur and a hip like honeycomb and a crack in pelvis last Oct ..scary stuff after a year wasted of being told I had arthritus and a trapped nerve ..it got that bad.
Oncologist told me leyrozole stops feeding the cancer cells and they should die ..then denosumab coats and rebuilds the damage so hope it does all what it should do.

Re: Bone mets - please join in

Thank you ladies for all your good wishes.
Carolyn, I did mention about my hip giving me some pain and she reassured me that pain doesn't always mean progression! It's just that I basically got a hole in my hip where the cancer is (yikes that was too much info for me) so don't be worrying when your hip plays up lovely!
Got my little Heidi for the day, we are taking her to be clipped she's very rag tag now πŸ˜€
