I hope some one will respond soon, that you can share with. I have yet to meet in person another IBCer, but I have "met" several here, and I love them! Hugs to you as you go thru treatment

Hi Meadow, Thank you so much for your welcome...It is great to have contact with other people going through this fight...I live rural so I can't get to support groups very easily...I hope to talk to someone with similar cancer soon... Do my medical details show up on here for you to see? I thought I had set it so they do...but I can't see them on my post...take care.

You are so welcome, yes your details are here, do you see them now? I can see my own so you should be able too, I think only on the intial thread question post, that first one, they do not show so you should be good to go now If you have not already, explore the website here, there is a thread for your surgery month of March.and for your chemo in May and later, your Rads month too. I joined the September 2013 Chemo thread when I was diagnosed and I was so glad I did,as it was great to have support with ladies doing it at the same time. We became a sisterhood and are still support each other. Check it out!

Hi Maree,  Meadow on the TNBC site gave me your name as she noticed you are in New Zealand.  I live in Taupo.  I am 3½ years out now from diagnosis.  I had left breast mastectomy, then three months of chemo and five weeks of radiation at the Cancer Lodge in Hamilton.  All the ladies on our site have different diagnosis and you are very welcome to join us but sorry that you have to.  They are a wealth of information if you have any questions or just want to cry, rant, swear, whatever.  We will be there for you.

hi everybody, my name is Pam and I live in Delaware ind the U.S. I was diagnosed with Medullary carcinoma 10 years ago and treated with chemo and radiation. Last year I got triple negative breast cancer and started treatment all over again. My biggest issue is the constant production of fluid on the right side a year after sugury but apart from that all is well.

hello @Maree155 :

Hope this message finds you well and recovering....just stopping by to share this link below provides scientific articles of Medullary Carinoma that I hope will be of use to you. May need to sift through the titles to find the ones that are pertinent.

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/?term=Medullary+Carcinoma

In the meantime, if you are interested to find out if there are immunotherapy treatment being used to treat Medullary Carinoma, you may wish to consider writing to the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer, or request to be on their mailing list to keep you updated of new developments?

P.S.

Below VIDEO link talks about the use of immunotherapy in cancer treatment (current hot cancer treatment topic) and fascinating to watch.

Have a fantastic summer and sending you lots of wishes and enjoyment in your readings..@@!!@@
