Nicole,

I think it depends on your lung met situation. When I was first diagnosed, I had a 4cm mass and multiple nodules in my right lung. I had the large mass radiated back then and it seems mostly necrotic. The smaller nodules in both lungs at this point are too numerous to radiate. I did, however, recently zap a lung tumor that was pushing against and eroding a few of my lower right ribs. I have known people who have had successful lung resections but don't know anyone who has done it recently. Unike your liver, your lung will not grow back if a section is removed. I have also heard that lung resection is horribly painful.

Since you just have one tiny lung met, it may go away with systemic treatment. Hoping this will be the case for you!

Hugs, Susan

I was diagnosed with Bone, Liver and Lung mets, after 6 months of Ibrance +Fulvestrant + Xgeva I am NEAD. My pathological reports have always been normal even during diagnosis.

Anyone knows if this means the affected organs can go back to normal function ?

Hi malebreastc,

You don’t mention what abnormal functions you are referring to so it’s difficult to answer with certainty but I have found that, while I have never been NEAD (we don’t do PET scans, only CT), things did pretty much go back to normal with effective treatment. I was initially diagnosed with a lung full of fluid. I still have some loculated fluid in that lung and about 1/3 is non-functioning but no longer have any cough and, for the most part, the lung seems to be doing its job. I have some SOB at times but it’s hard to know if it’s due to the disease or the treatment.

I have not had any signs that my liver wasn’t functioning other than some elevated numbers in blood tests. Those have gone back to normal. I have had some pain due to one lesion that is pressing on the capsule. It’s much less now.

All to say, I think things should improve with NEAD. Congratulations on getting there!

Hi Sadiesservant

Thanks for your response, mine was PET and nothing lit up, I read somewhere that once mets appear and even after they don’t light up, there are scars to the organs and damages to the bone which could be permanent, so the question is does everything go back to normal

Hi maledbreastc...wonderful to attain positive response..as to the term normal this is an unknown quality...here in Australia the term used us stable..

Many factors at play to determine normal

Our organs and bones can recover

We will always be termed metastatic and require monitoring forever

Mbc is a lurker many years even decades can go by before it appears

So once diagonised and we have a positive response life can get back to normal

We are our own advocates

Be vigilant and continue with monitoring

All the best

bright in hope
