ladyinred. I'm sure you are scared. It's a frightening disease. Do you know what type of BC you have? Mine is ERPR + and HER 2 -. Depending on your receptor studies you might be able to take Ibrance and letrozole both are pills. What chemo did you have? I/L worked well for me for almost two years. Especially on my lung and chest mets. For my liver mets I had a local procedures called radioembolization. This is done by an interventional radiologist. It worked great for me for 18 months. I've just started on Aromasin and Afinitor, a targeted therapy. Both are pills. My scans showed I have progression in my lung, chest and liver.
I'm sure you had a BX at the beginning, your new BX might show some differences from your first one. If so that would give you some different treatment options. Sounds like your MO is doing all the right things. You can read a lot of good information on the liver mets thread. Yes, the PET will tell you more info that your MO needs to make sure of what TX to put you on. Let us know what you find out.💞
