Katyblu- my bone mets were extensive and bone marrow also- cleared significantly with Ibrance for about 20 months, then bloomed, cleared again on Afinitor for 10 months, then bloomed, on Xeloda for 19 months and once again cleared. if the meds work they can clear up extensive mets- it may take a little while, although in my case TMs went down fairly rapidly. Good luck!

Met with my MO today re my PET and she is very happy with it, the few new tiny spots she is not concerned with, my TMs are on a downward course now also, she says the spots may be gone with the next PET and carry on with the Xeloda. I am so relieved. I am going to breathe again for a few months.

My next PET scan is this Friday, the first since the know Stage IV diagnosis. I'm scared and hopeful, and I know many of you can relate.


Treatment has been up and down. I did about 5 weeks of 150mg Verzenio, and switched about two weeks ago to 100mg. Tummy issues have been much better. Unfortunately the Xarelto seems to have be causing some excess bleeding, and I'm taking a break until things resolve. Next fulvestrant shot and first xgeva are next week.

Hi beth, sorry you're feeling pain. Radiation really helps many with pain so perhaps that should be part of your care plan sooner rather than later?

as for the drug, I think maybe it's dilaudid? That's for pain. Dilantin is anti-seizure...

sorry that you fell - that's the last thing we need, right? I'm being so careful now but I do dog agility with a young lab cross and sooner or later I'm going to take a big tumble. I try as much as possible to be prepared though, good footwear, avoid slippery surfaces and pay attention to what I'm doing. We have to baby our bones now.

It's really hard at the beginning but once you see how your treatment works, things get better both physically & emotionally.

Hi all,

By way of introduction: Stage III BC in 2013, mets to thoracic spine in 2014, managed with radiation and lots of different therapies (see signature). The RO said he used every bit of radiation I should have in my lifetime on my T-4,T-5 area. Yes, I had compression fractures regularly. Used opioids as needed.

Fast forward to the last 1-2 years, in which I've had progression in bone (more vertebrae, iliac, hip, ribs, shoulder blade). I went on the last chemo I plan to do (Taxotere), which ended in April. There was some progression and no retreat. The vertebral and shoulder pain became excruciating in the last couple months. They put me on a Fentanyl patch, very low dose, a month ago, with oxy for breakthrough pain. It has been only ok as a solution and my MO suggested... Osteocool.

I underwent the Osteocool ablation and kyphoplasty procedure on Sep 10. I can hardly find anything about the procedure in journals on the web, and certainly not on discussion boards. It's very new (last few years) and only a few hundred have gone through it. Pre procedure I was 7-9 pain most days. The procedure itself was torturous because I have very dense vertebrae (sclerotic) and, under twilight sedation, they hammered the needles with the radio-therapy tips into the vertebra, fried the tumor, and cemented the gap. They say, it's not normal for the procedure to be that terrible. (They tell me I was trying to climb off the table when they started hammering.)

I'm on day 5 post-procedure and I'm doing ok. The pain is today a 5-6 throughout the day (that's using an opioid midday and middle of night). 6-8 at night. First few days were 10/10 for sure. I'm assuming I'm still dealing with post-treatment pain, so I'll give it 2 solid weeks before I say if it was helpful. I'm not in a hurry to schedule the next session; however, I hate the dopey constipated feeling of fentanyl and oxy.

There were four areas they wanted to ablate, and usually limit themselves to two per session. They got 1.5 done because I was difficult :). Next time I'll be under general anesthesia.

My goal: be able to go off of narcotics and just use ibuprofen again. To live without wanting to die.

I am open to questions. I would love to know if anyone's done the procedure or anything like it. I think there was some discussion 30 pages ago about kyphoplasty, cementoplasty.

And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. -- Anais Nin Dx 1/9/2013, IDC, Right, 1cm, Stage IIIC, metastasized to brain, Grade 2, 11/12 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2- (IHC) Dx 6/2014, Stage IV, metastasized to bone, ER+ Hormonal Therapy 5/1/2015 Faslodex (fulvestrant) Targeted Therapy 2/11/2016 Ibrance (palbociclib) Targeted Therapy 2/13/2017 Ibrance (palbociclib) Dx 12/16/2020, Right, 1cm, Stage IV, metastasized to bone, Grade 2, 11/12 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2- Surgery Lumpectomy: Right; Lymph node removal: Sentinel, Underarm/Axillary Radiation Therapy Breast, Lymph nodes Radiation Therapy External: Bone Targeted Therapy Afinitor (everolimus) Hormonal Therapy Aromasin (exemestane) Targeted Therapy Hormonal Therapy Arimidex (anastrozole) Chemotherapy Taxotere (docetaxel) Targeted Therapy Herceptin (trastuzumab) Chemotherapy AC + T (Taxol)

Pearl-girl: Please keep us posted with your outcome re the procedure. I hope you receive pain relief asap. When I had SBRT x2 years ago, this procedure with the Osteocool was in the planning phase to be approved in the IR department. When I had a consultation with IR, I recall the provider being optimistic having this intervention available in the near future.

Hi everyone,


I had my PET-CT yesterday. Those no-carb, no-caffeine days are rough, combined with the 6 hours of no food. I had a headache that progressively got worse. It took four sticks and the IV specialist to get the IV in, but everything went smoothly after that. I watched a couple episodes of Friends and they wheeled me in.

I haven't heard from the doc yet (scan was Friday afternoon), but the report in the portal makes it sound like there's no new mets and the existing one in the iliac bone has reduced activity. Hoping that's correct.


I was hoping for no activity after radiation and new meds, but I'm happy it sounds like things are going in the right direction. I see my doc Tuesday and get my next fulvestrant shot and first xgeva shot that day too. I don't have much pain but there's tightness and strain in the joints that could be the result of radiation or just general bone weakness.


Hope you all are having a good weekend.

pearl-girl thanks for sharing your story about osteocool procedure. Here is positive vibes for your speedy and painless recovery. Please let us know how you are feeling.
I was a candidate for osteocool ablation at the beginning but my vertebrae broke and tumor extended to my cord, so the team decided that radiation was the right treatment. I talked to IR physician several months after radiation, he said this procedure is off the table for me because the risks of spreading is high. I have some other bone Mets in my spine, and I am more leaning towards osteocool ablation when it's time.
