Hi @junec, great topic to start. I'm tagging fellow breast cancer met-thrivers like @claudiamaria @mom23boys @djwc @spooz2 @hockeymom25 @elizm @trivia @ja5747 and @dianamiracle to join this discussion to share the treatment options they have considered, are on or perhaps stopped.

Ibrance is a treatment option that several have experience with. June, you mention that you're concerned in particular about the reduced immune response when on Ibrance. That is certainly something to consider, but not an insurmountable side effect with extra cautions. However, during this time of COVID and flu and other viruses, I can understand your giving it careful thought. I'll be interested to hear what others have to say about the precautions and awareness they live with while on Ibrance.

June, Do you think living on your own makes having low immune response harder or perhaps easier to manage?

Thank you for sharing with other the more feedback I can received about how someone's actual day is like on this drug it will help me with a decision. In answer to your question, it easier to deal with the low immune if I just stay home. But I want to visit most of my friends who live around the country and my grandson lives in PA far from me. So being mobile as long as possible is very important to me.
