Mets to Liver After Breast Cancer Diagnosis & Treatment in 2012
Long post alert:
I have been diagnosed with metastasis to the liver after having a PET Scan and blood work. I had breast cancer 11 years ago and I found a lump on November 8th 2021 near my right clavicle and it is very painful to the touch with the area around, in back of it swollen and causing a lot of pain. It is affecting my right shoulder causing excruciating pain as well, the lump appears to be palpable and has moved. I have not begun treatment of any sorts. I am still taking the Anastrozole I was prescribed 20 months ago by my oncologist.
With it being 2 months since finding this lump, does it seem like a long time to go without having any chemo, radiation or surgery, etc?
The doctor has only prescribed Percocets for the pain. I feel it has spread beyond being able to be treated. I am feeling hopeless, frustrated and like my doctors do not care.
The liver biopsy was performed on Thursday January 6th and I am still in pain from that.
Does this seem normal to have not started some treatment yet or am I just over anxious?
