Hello ! I am from Romania and I received the diagnosis of breast cancer in September 2021 (in both breasts / stage 4 with metastases in the axillary nodes / invasive ductal carcinoma / luminal B/ ER+ PR+ / HER2- / the genetic test is OK and did not show any mutated genes / I did chemotherapy, then radical masectomy of both breasts with bilateral axillary lymphadenectomy, then radiotherapy / I am currently being treated with abemaciclib - VERZENIOS, letrozole - LETROZOL ALVOGEN and goselerin - ZOLADEX.
For now, I have no metastases in other organs, with the exception of the axillary nodes. Sixteen lymph nodes were removed by axillary lymphadenectomy, all of which were positive for metastases, and 6 were beyond the capsule. I would be interested to know if under the treatment with VERZENIO there is a risk of spreading (metastases) to other organs or if the chances are higher that it will not spread. How does the spread to the axillary nodes usually evolve if the capsule has been exceeded in some of them? Can I hope that distant metastases will not appear for a long time, in other organs? Thank you !
