Stage III and Ibrance

I started Ibrance 125 mg because of PIK3CA mutation even if I'm still stage III.

Long story short : I was grafted with cancer cells during a reconstruction surgery in 2017 (lipofilling). This is the reason why my MO prefers to give me Ibrance instead Verzenio (to let open my options of treatments for the future, there will be new medications playing on CDK inhibits for the next years).

My doctor told me I will have Ibrance "until I will die" if I'm lucky (ouch!).

My question : what is the longest time people here took Ibrance and how are they doing ?

    Nobody's been on Ibrance for very long! I think it's only been around for 5 years or something.
