Brandall and NBnotes- i honestly dont know who or why they dont do mx with stage 4 although they DID do mine after knowing i was stage 4. ANd i think if that "option was taken away" you could just find another dr that would do it right???? Maybe its an insurance thing???? 

J1e1n1a- thats exactly what they did in my case (chemo first to shrink it then bi lat mx) they may still be going for that option. When do you see the suregon?

Thank you for sharing that English! Loved the video- such a positive attitude!

I love that our little thread is so active...well, you know what I mean! Wish that none of us were here but glad we're in it together.

Weighing in on the hysterectomy topic, my onc wants an ooph sooner than later. Gah, I hate the thought of more surgery (I had a bilateral with reconstruction when I was IIb) but I guess I gotta do what I gotta do. I'm on Lupron & Tamoxifen now. Worried that the ooph is going to give me some super severe menopause symptoms (I just have a few hot flashes and dryness now).

Have any of you done radiation?  I'm about to start on Monday.  It kind of freaks me out that I'll still be producing estrogen during that time (hysterectomy is schedule for mid-march) and I'm not on any drugs to stop them.  Can you do the Lupron shots while you are on radiation?  I know they won't do the Tamoxifen until after I stop.  When I asked about this before, the Onc just said that since I'm still in chemo induced menopause and probably will be for at least 6 months to a year following chemo, that I'll be fine.  Wonder if that is true?  Sometimes, it's all just so confusing!  I feel like I type that a lot LOL.

Brandall- the order sounds about right. I was diagnosed at 37 years of age. Then I had my surgery, then recovered from surgery about a month later i started Chemo for 8 rounds and radation last for about a month. Then about a month later I started tomoxfin and lupron injections.

I did radiation before Tamoxifen. The radiation was uncomfortable (the positioning) and exhausting (daily treatment). Trying to juggle that with work and 2.5 year old was a lot. But in hindsight it passed quickly. Good luck!

This first one was Taxotere and Cytoxin only. They left off the Adriamycin with this first batch since it can interact with radiation.(also got zometa and lupron)
I will do radiation every day this week and next week for sure.... but not sure if week after since they are gonna put me on The Adriamycin for my next treatment.

Brandall- I did radiation 33 treatments, only SE from that was the skin sorta burned in my crease from where i had to position my arm, strange i was on tamox since dec 2010 (when i finished chemo) all the way through my mx, and radiation- only stopped when i had progression and they found my cancer was no longer ER+....

Hmm...isn't it so strange how depending on what doctor you have, things can be so different!  I think they are waiting on the tamoxifen because there are some indications that either the radiation isn't as effective with the tamoxifen or vice versa, I can't remember which.  

On a different note, today is my 37th birthday!  Hooray for another birthday!!!!

I just joined the site today, and I'm really suprised to see all of the ladies that are so young with metastatic breast cancer. I was diagnosed this past July, two months after getting married. I'm 28. I've met some other ladies at the infusion center who are young like me, but everyone is stage 1. Its hard to really identify with someone who isn't in our situation.



and I see that some of you ladies are just starting the Taxotere, Perjetta, Herceptin course. I did my cycle from august-december. My hair is all fuzzy and starting to grow back now. I continue to get herceptin and perjetta every three weeks, forever, and they added me on Tamoxofen. Luckily, now that the taxotere is done, i'm not finding too many side effects except a bit of joint pain in my knees.

Hello LnP - Sorry you have to join our thread, but at least there is a place to get support :)  I was diagnosed this past July as well.  I only saw ONE other person as young as I was (36) in the infusion room the 8 times I went there.  Everyone would stare at me when I came in, but I got used to it :)  Glad that you are feeling better!

aic - I'll be sending tons of positive juju your way that your scans still come up NED!!!
