Well, after ten years, I was diagnosed with bone mets in March. I had unbelievable pain in my hip and was incorrectly diagnosed with bursitis. Fast forward six months and with some persistence in requesting scans, they discovered that my femur was fractured and I had been walking on it for at least six months then they discovered the mets. I had a rod placed and am 98% recovered from surgery, they radiated the bone and I have been on Letrozole for 2 weeks. I will receive Ibrance tomorrow and waiting for the go-ahead from my oncologist to start taking it. I have unwaivering faith and a tremendous circle of support. But no one quite understand what we go through. So I am hoping to find a friend or two, as I did 10 years ago. Be blessed, always!

ninetwelve,

you have had a very good answer to treatments. Have you been treated only with hormonal and targeted therapy or did you also have chemotherapy?
