If you have the energy and the determination you should pester your oncologist! My oncologist nearly fell off his chair when my results came back HER2+ he was not expecting it and my BC still acts as if it is HER2- meaning that is not a high grade and not super aggressive which is what really scared me when I knew it had changed. I'm also 8/8 ER and 6/8 PR so it doesn't mean you can't be HER2+ as well, which some oncologists also think. It really is a faff to have to keep on at your medical team but when I went for a second opinion at The Marsden the head Prof there (for secondary BC) said all secondary BC should be biopsied as receptors are known to change.

Sorry to hear about your recent scan results and the effect this will now have on what you had hoped to be doing job wise.
Just a thought - have you had a liver biopsy done recently (or at all)? Receptor status can change in a higher percentage of women than a lot of oncologist's give credit for, especially from HER2- to HER2+, as mine did. Although I am still strongly hormone positive it does mean that this type of treatment ie hormone will not be as successful for me on its own and I am now also having Herceptin (and Pertuzamab) which I have not had before.
Sending you a hug as its not the news you would have wanted to hear when you got your results.

Very sorry to read your news.Response to treatments seems so random sometimes. But this means that it can be unexpectedly good too - I hope the next one works really well for you.
