Hey all, I am starting this thread to give us a place to meet up and check in. We all know this "ain't Facebook" and since some of us have left the boards recently let's have a roll call and start fresh here. Some of the "IBC ladies" and other threads have gone a bit untended so let's see who we are:

I'll go first: dx June 2015 TN IBC, not NED but hoping to get there.

IBC is such a different diagnosis than so many of the other types of BC I think it is really important for us to talk and share and learn from each other.

I am taking a "board break" mid June 2016, I will be back but mentally exhausted right now. Peace be with all of you. Diagnosed at 46 triple negative IBC. Mets to skin, lungs, bones.

Yes, nice to have you back in the Lounge SB. And glad to hear that the strep infection is being managed. We certainly do live in an amazing medical era. As you've read, we're fighting a few fires around here right now and it's good to have a few folks chime in to spread advice and cheer.

Amarantha, your gnus is certainly better! You must feel somewhat relieved and I'm so glad your onc was positive. Obviously, the idea is to get the skin of the remaining breast cleared up for the mastectomy. How many chemo treatments do you have left?

Amarantha I'm so happy to hear your good news! I hope the left side starts responding to treatment soon too.

SB ugh strep, hope you feel better soon. What a miserable time of the year to be sick (although there's never really a good time). Hope your weather has been as beautiful as mine, still in the 70s here and I'm truly enjoying it, but waiting to see what the "killer heat wave" brings later this week. I'm close to the beach so I have no a/c, if it gets too bad I shall spend all of my time in the pool hahaha! Might even have to whip up a frozen cocktail (I haven't had alcohol since my DX because I was on opioids!).

MoreShoes, are you oligometastatic? That's often a determining factor in treatment at Stage IV, as they typically still make an "attempt to cure" when oligometastic, but other factors come into play when mets are more extensive. Hope you get a treatment plan in place that you are comfortable with. Please keep us up to date, we're all pulling for you.

Waving hello to everyone else, hope you are all doing well!

Dear friends, thank you so much for your support and advice. I'd be lost without your collective knowledge and help. I've reread your messages before my appointment with the oncologist and it finally dawns on to me.

The plan of the oncologist, (and I agree with her) is: the spots in the lungs are very small, I don't have any symptoms yet, I found out about them quite by chance. So for the time being we don't do anything. I go on vacation, enjoy myself and at the end of August I have another scan. Depending on the results, I start with Xeloda. Amsterdam is doing trials with immunetherapy but I can't join yet, cause the spots are smaller than 1cm. In any case, I've an appointment with them to get more information about it.

I feel a kind of relief. There's still hope and I'll try to enjoy myself as much as I can. She asked me if I do want to continue with therapies. I told her, that two yeas ago, when the IBC came I thought that was the end. After the chemo's and DMX, I could still go to my son's graduation. Two days ago, I went to my daughter's graduation. So yes, I want to keep on trying being around as long as possible.

Dear wonderful people, Perhaps the sudden cooler weather, easier to stand ? I have a feeling of just having turned the corner -- this is week four of my five weeks of cisplatin + radiation, the radiation doctor today though there was visible improvement even since last week in the breast. Suddenly so much more hopeful, and feeling really good. Happy to be in France, happy to have a zippy beat up little old car to drive, with fake screeching noise (from my lips) around corners. Happy to see the love in my husbands eyes. Happy with our little solar fountain in a blue basin. Happy with the little hoppy birds I've come to call my clients. Happy with the newly blooming flowers, some white hollyhocks, some red gladiolas, some pink cosmos coming out, white ones on the way, and magenta already. Turtledoves in the birthbath with the thirsty wasps. Some flowery tree blooming over the fence ... a good day. May we all continue to find joy from moment to moment.

So good to see you in good spirits Amarantha, and wonderful news that you are finally seeing some improvement. Hope things continue to go well for you! Your garden sounds absolutely wonderful, and I'm laughing at my vision of you making screeching noises as you drive around those street corners. :)

Just minor issues here - Silly me stopped taking gabapentin without telling my doctor when I stopped taking opiods, and apparently I have neuropathy issues that I didn't realize until recently. In fact that's why I wasn't getting much sleep the past couple months, as the pain meds left my system the burning in my feet was getting worse every day and keeping me up all night until I realized what it was. Back on gabapentin now, and this week we doubled my dose. My MO said that the hiking I plan to do in a few weeks is going to aggravate it, so we're trying to get on top of it now. The past few nights I've actually been able to sleep straight through the night, yay!!!!

And he thinks the pain, tenderness and severe cramping I've been experiencing in one rib is actually due to muscle spasms in my back caused by the bones healing. I knew it wasn't cracked because I had no problem breathing, but the pain was persisting for several weeks so I figured it was time to mention it given my bone mets. I'm supposed to try treating it with heat, but who wants to use a heating pad in the middle of summer?! He did offer to let me go back on the morphine but I'm trying to avoid that at all costs.

Other than those little things all is good here. Getting excited about taking a long-overdue and much needed vacation in nature, and have been working hard to build up my strength and stamina so I can enjoy it.

PS - If you don't usually scroll all the way down to the end of the page on the main forum, you probably haven't seen the new ribbon that TravelText posted in the Advocacy thread. I absolute love it, go check it out if you haven't yet seen it.

It's really just minor stuff TravelText, given how advanced my cancer is and the bad shape I was in just a few months ago. It takes more than that to keep me down. Healing is often painful too, but it's a pain I can be grateful for because it means that the treatment is working. I really do feel fantastic besides the little aches and pains. Most importantly I'm still alive and doing better every day when they never expected I would last this long! I'm back in the gym doing some light strength training with my doctor's blessing, swimming (although I had to modify my stroke due to the rib pain, I mostly swim on my back), can easily walk for several miles on flat ground and stairs/hills are getting a little easier. Six months ago it was still hard just to get showered and dressed every day hehe. Now that I'm sleeping again, I will continue to get better and stronger every day!

I am sorry that I am going to miss your visit. I hope we don't have another triple digit heat wave while you are here. It doesn't usually get that hot along the coast but phew it was bad last week!! I hope you have a great time while you are here and that you have a chance to see some of our beautiful coastline.

Traveltext, I LOVE your ribbon, and will be happy to use it when you say it is finalised.

LoriCA, I am glad you consider the current tribulations to be "minor stuff" and that it takes more than that to keep you down. Your courage gives me courage ! Swimming is a blessing ! yes ! I wish to get back to swimming, love my local lake, but I guess will have to wait until rads and chemo are done. It is wonderfully encouraging to hear that you are feeling much better compared to six months ago, and to know that you are feeling better and stronger every day !

sbelizabeth, thank you so much for your kind words about words <3 It means so much to be able to read and be read here. Hugs to you.

Traveltext again -- I feel the need to say how much I appreciate your participation here :)

I'm adding ... grappling with nausea today and yesterday, and I'm getting the idea that my last week - next week of chemo/rads is going to probably be the hardest of all, it seems the effect of the nausea is cumulative, and even all these combined mega drugs are starting to need ramping up.

HI lovely people. I just have two more radiation sessions left, then on to the next thing. I saw the radiation doctor today. He is always trying to sober me - his byword is "I don't want to give you false hopes". He sees that there has been good progress in reducing the inflammatory cancer in the right breast, but is still not sure we will actually be able to operate. We may have done this all for nothing. I'm more optimistic somehow, I feel inside that this will happen. But it is true I will be very disappointed if it is deemed too dangerous. In any case it seems I had another case of "cheer up the doctor" today.

Thanks amarantha. That’s not me, I’m here to listen and learn. However, I’m asking some tricky questions of this group, since they are the ones that ten years ago set the goal of finding a cure by 2020. Most people thought this was bit ambitious.

This is me and my question that was posted on Twitter.

Q. Could NBCC focus more on treatment for Stage IV BC people rather than just prevention?

A. We believe we are on the right trajectory and have done more for metastatic people than any other breast cancer charity.
