2005 DCIS - lumpectomy

2012 small (1.1cm) IDC and DCIS - bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction

2020 Stage IV

I felt a couple of hard lumps in my armpit a little while ago, ultrasound and biopsy showed metastatic adenocarcinoma in most nodes in the left axilla. I had a PET scan last week and it shows metastases to several lymph nodes in the mediastinum and a couple of very small spots in my lungs. The hormone receptor status hasn't come back yet, but assuming its the same as in 2012 (ER+PR+ Her2-), my doctor is recommending Verzenio with Faslodex.

I'm bummed to be here again but I'm sure grateful you're all still here and I have a place to read, learn and ask questions as we go down this road. Hugs and love to you all! <3

Sorry to hear this. I'm scared that this is the path I am on. In the middle of a recurrence scare and had to wait 3 weeks just to get a biopsy scheduled. Doctors make it seem like DCIS is no big deal.. the fact that DCIS or Stage 1 can jump to Stage IV is alarming. It's like this never actually leaves our bodies, it just reduces itself to the point of being imperceptible, until it's perceptible and threatening again.

Thank you, ladies.

Blah, I know what you mean about thinking DCIS is no big deal and then getting a diagnosis that seems more serious. The IDC and DCIS in 2012 had a different signature and was deemed a second primary. The margins from my bilateral mastectomy were very very close in the deep margin. So, in a way, I'm not totally surprised that its back. I think when you've had it once, its always sort of in the back of your mind. That said, my mantra has always been "don't bleed till you're shot." I'm sorry you've had to wait so long for a biopsy.

Berries, I wasn't on any hormonal treatment in 2012. I had severe side effects from Tamoxifen and then Armidex in 2006-10 for the DCIS. My oncologist at the time of my mastectomies said she would be happy with a margin of even one cell, and seeing as I had problems with the drugs, I opted out with her approval. Hopefully, I won't have similar reactions this time around.

Wishing you all a peaceful day! <3

Its all about the side effects, isn't it, Kbeee? My oncologist wants biopsies of the mediastinal nodes and I met with the pulmonologist yesterday. That procedure is scheduled for Tuesday 1/28. Then breast MRI on 2/4 and we should have all the information to be confident going forward with the treatment plan.

Mayo does pharmacogenetics testing now to help determine if there are reasons that you react to certain medications, if certain medications may work better for you, etc. Perhaps your doctor could order this since you have a history of horrible side effects. You don't have to be a Mayo patient. Then once you have your test results, you'll have an extra piece of information to make the best treatment decision for you. I think this is the link to it so you can see what I'm talking about..... https://oneome.com/

It sounds like you've got a great care team in place and that they're being very thorough.

KBeee, yes I've had my blood drawn for genetic testing. I just looked on their website (you can register and enter the serial number of your test, which the MO gave me), and the results are currently in clinician review. Hopefully, I'll hear soon. They tested 84 different genes. I think that's similar to the oneome testing but I'll ask my MO to be sure. We spend our summers in a suburb of the Twin Cities - there's SO much great biomedical research/startups/companies in that area.

I am sorry that it is hormone receptor negative this time. Uuuuugh. (((HUGS))) If they recommend chemo, which they likely will, I highly encourage you to join the chemo board for the month you start. I can say that my Sept 2013 gals and my March/April 2015 gals that I traveled that journey with are still close. We're still in a group together, and I've met many of them. I read a ton of chemo blogs and read the boards, and made a survival list. I am happy to PM it to you if you'd like if your doctors decide on chemo. Thinking of you.

They did that with my mom and it really helped to make the best decisions about what her tumor would respond to. You sound like you have a great team in place.


The ONEOME testing would actually be most helpful for purple32. I read both threads back to back. She had some horrible reactions to Tamoxifen and AIs, and it could potentially give reasons as to why.

Had chemo. Surgery removed the tumors and nodes. All other nodes clean but they weren’t able to get clean margins. I’m almost done with radiation. Doing hormone therapy. Living with a lot of positivity but also a lot of uncertainty and fear. Thank you for sharing your story! Prayers to you.
