Ive been away over the last week or so, both from the forum and from the UK so haven’t been adding anything although occasionally read if I get a WiFi connection.
I think I saw another post from you about your recent bone mets diagnosis. I just wanted to add on this thread that I have been living with bone mets for over 10 years now, I had my primary back in 2003 when my daughters were 13 and 11. When 8 had the bone mets diagnosis I thought I would be dead within the year but as you can see I’m still here. My daughters are now grown up and one has a baby - a grandchild I never expected to meet. It is tough, especially initially and not everyone reacts to treatment in the same way which is why it is difficult to say how long everyone has got. Your oncologist might only know if a few cases so has probably based his/her timescale on that. I know if other ladies on here who lived a long time with bone mets and although they are sadly no longer with us they also didn’t have access to all the drugs etc that we have so might have lived even longer if they had.
I hope this helps.
