Thanks hapa. I have doing more or less the same, but in the last five months very consistently. More cheese, more yogurt, more kiwis, almonds, chia seeds, dried figs, canned sardines...all things calcium. I also got the pill dispenser. For me, it works and it's the only thing that works.
And you are right, hapa, that the real deal for us with residual disease was Kadcyla. Like you, I wish I had been able to get it. I blame my (then-beloved) oncologist, for not being on top of the latest developments, beyond the established standard of care. He should/could have switched me, before I reached the tail end of the H-P course, but instead he dragged his feet until it was too late. Hopefully Herceptin + Perjeta + Neratinib will work for us.
Fab4mom, good that your MO will attend the SABS conferences. But these results have been out since October, and they confirm prior results taken at the 5y mark. Your MO shouldn't need to attend that conference to get the story straight and make up his/her mind one way or another. Not saying this makes sense for you, since you are already getting Kadcyla. But it just pisses me off when doctors are slow to keep up, then procrastinate further when you ask for an informed opinion about developments they ignore. Sorry for the venting.
