Good Morning Ladies
I haven't posted for a little while but have just come back from holiday in Devon - beautiful place, terrible weather unfortunately but hey that's holidaying in the UK!
Anyway, I was diagnosed with the double whammy of lobular breast cancer and extensive bone mets back in May 2016. Since then I have been on Ibandronic acid (bisphosphonates), Zoladex injections and tamoxifen. I am due to go back on Monday to have a CT scan with the follow up meeting with the Oncologist.
I have to say the anxiety levels are starting to rise. Can anybody offer me some words of encouragement? I don't now whether they will see any difference in just under three months of medication. Does anyone know how fast Tamoxifen works or how long you have to take it before it fully gets into your system. Also I read somewhere that the Ibandronic acid takes a minimum of six months before its benefits start to show.
Sending positive vibes out to everyone. Tiger14 and Skippy I have tried to private message you but no luck. I hope you are both doing OK.
Hi Andrea, I use to have my injections on different weeks and which drove me mad so on another mition to "take control" of this disease I spoke to my onc about getting them on the same day each month, I now have them every 4th Friday, that way they are both out of the way for a month.
Hi Helen, glad you had a good holiday, sounds like you had fun!!
Hugs Janette xxxx
