Roberta, I have to chime in here, although I mostly comment with the faslodex girls.  I did have mets in lungs when first diagnosed but they seem to have gone in remission.

But, I also have a nutribullet, and I bought it because it helps me get more fruits and veggies into my system, which my onc said I needed.  But here's something I've been told and have read.  Research in Canada has determined that a daily dose of flax seed, perhaps a tablespoon, has signifently lowered the markers of patients with stage 4 breast cancer.  Is there any truth to this?  I'm not sure but I went to a health store and bought a bag of ground flax seed and throw some of it into my nutribullet mixture whenever I whip one up, which is not every day but should be.   It certainly can't hurt.  Give it a try.

Carolben, sorry, tried to make this smaller but my ipad won't let me.  This is me at my daughter's wedding ... Lots of hair to blow in the ocean breezes!  Only time I have lost my hair was with taxotere.  Have been on chemo for over 3 years!!   Mods, if you can make it smaller for me, please do!!

Gorgeous, Gatorgal! You look so happy! 

Carolben - I've been on gemzar/carbo for 16 months so far - my hair all grew back on it that I lost with Abraxane. Best wishes. So sorry to hear of your progression, but hope your new chemo is as kind to you as mine has been to me! ;-)

Teresa - good information on the flax seed. Does it have much taste? Wonder how it would be sprinkled on sugar free strawberry ice cream? Winking
