Progression after ribociclib (or cdk4/6) and letrozole

Hi

I had her2 neg er+ breast cancer in 2018.

In 2022 i had recurrence in my bones (all over with 3 collapsed vertebrae) and liver.

I was on ribociclib and letrozole that worked really well, pet was negative and most metastasis disappear.

In August I had liver recurrence.

Blood test and markers are ok and i feel well so i didn't expect it at all! I'm so scared!

I had 3 different opinion for 2L terapy: capecitabine, or docetaxel, or eve+exe.

What did they suggest you?

I'm on italy and it feel so behind here compared to USA oncology...so I want to ear your oncologist opinion as well!

Also do you know where I can get a free second opinion in USA if I'm not from there? (My husband is from San Francisco but now is many years he live in Italy with me and our 3 year old kid so he have no longer medical insurance).

Thank you!!
