Hi all,

The stats below are of my mom. Her PET scan results just came back. It shows multiple lesions in bones and lungs. We have an appointment with her MO next week. I’m so sad and disappointed. She just finished 7 Xeloda cycles. I never thought her cancer will come back this soon. I though it would be a couple of years before her cancer would come back. I’m so sad and frightened. I don’t know how many years will she be able to live. Please please share you experiences.

Dx 1/22/2019, IDC, Left, 6cm+, Stage IIIB, Grade 2, ER-/PR-, HER2- (FISH) Chemotherapy 2/17/2019 AC + T (Taxol)
