Recently dx with BC that spread to spine and pelvic bone. Any one out there , also with this situation and for how long have you dealt with this spread of cancer. I was surprised as it started only a few months after breast total removal surgery. Wondering if the surgery was not successful that cancer cells spread so soon and quickly.

Hi @elvandi,
There are several members here on Connect who have breast cancer that has metastasized to the bone, such as @rae3 @marbar369 @wandering @djankord1 @sistie and @lisamc. I'm tagging them here in the hopes that they will join the conversation and share their experiences with you.

Glori, that the breast cancer spread so quickly after surgery doesn't necessarily mean that the surgery was not successful. Before surgery, I'm sure you have many imaging tests done, such as CT scans and/or MRIs. It is possible that before surgery there was no visible spread to the bones or other parts of your body, but that the cancer had already started to move into the lymph nodes. Did you you have lymph nodes removed during surgery? Did they come back positive?

What treatment are you now on? Do you have pain?
