Hi @ja5747, and welcome to Connect. I'm bringing in @marybe and @bowhunt1969 who also have invasive lobular cancer.

I also want to share this discussion about metastatic breast cancer with you:
– Metastatic breast cancer: Anyone else? https://connect.mayoclinic.org/discussion/metastatic-breast-cancer-to-the-bone/

How are you doing, JA? Has further treatment beyond Faslodex been recommended?

Hi @colleenyoung, thank you for the reply. I read many of the pages of the discussion link you sent, but didn't see anything about stomach metastasis (wishing there was a search function to narrow things down a bit). With more time, I'll read more of the pages. Given the results of the recent scans, the recommendation is to consider a stomach resection. I'll be meeting with a surgeon to discuss. We are also waiting results of genomic testing to determine if a different drug is more appropriate. Until then, will stay with Faslodex and Arimidex (that I've been taking for 5 1/2 years).
