TNBC with lung metastasis
My mother was diagnosed with TNBC stage 3 on Nov, 2016. She did 4rounds of AC, 4rounds of Docetaxol, single Mastectomy and 27 lymph nodes removal, 13 positive for cancer, did not achieve PCR with the chemo so then started for 6months of Capecitabin (Xeloda), and then 25days of radiation on the cancer site, chest wall and Axillary area. All the treatment came to an end on January 7th, 2018. We were so happy but to our utter surprise and complete shock, she started having pleural effusion after 3weeks of completing radiation. After removing water through thoracentesis twice, the water and cough came negative for malignancy. She did a pet CT scan4days back and we got the result today. Her cancer has spread to right lung. The whole family is shattered. Doctor wants to Put her on Gemcitabein and platinum based chemo to improve survival. But he said even after treatment, the prognosis is usually few months to year with TNBC lung metastasis. Is there anyone on the same page. I am desperately in need of some hope. I am pregnant and due in August and only daughter of my mother. I want her to see my child growing up. Nothing can be more painful than this. Please enlighten me if anyone of you can. Please. Thank you.
