Two options left - what does this mean?
Posting on behalf of a dear dear friend of mine who is living with MBC. She was first diagnosed in 2015 with mets to liver and bone - she is also now one of the unlucky 1% to have a singular met in her mandible.
It looks like she will need radiation (which she is terrified to have near her face) and to change her medication. At the moment she is on Piqray I believe but it has given her a godawful rash that she cannot bear.
Her onc has told her she has two lines of treatment remaining - one oral chemo and one IV.
Am I right in thinking that if/when each of these fails, that's the end? That is a terrifying thought. Two treatments left does not sound like very much time at all.
I don't want to ask her too many questions as she's completely overwhelmed and terrified. I try googling and learning on these boards but I get so confused by all the different drugs and terms.
Has anybody been down to one or two treatments left and been able to stay on them for a good while? In need of some hope.
Thank you XX
