Thank you for the detailed response it was very helpful. I too want to travel and have always been very careful. The copay is very high but there's some programs I hope will make it more affordable. That fatigue is real but you are still active is hopeful info for me.

I assume you are getting Ibrance from a specialty pharmacy, check with them to see if you qualify for the $0 co-pay card from the drug maker. Also, have you done any geonomic testing? I did mine through a company called Foundation One (I believe there are others) – my cancer center helped with the application process and cost for the patient is dependent on many variables, annual income being one of the biggest considerations. The purpose of the testing is to check the composition of your tumor tissue against all drugs to find one that might respond better for your situation. I matched to a couple of drugs, one of which I just started a couple of weeks ago. Best wishes!
