Thank you for the info. I did read the article. My last treatment was July 10th. I keep aloe vera gel on the redness continuously for moisturizing. Again thanks for your comments…

Hi Sistie…so good to hear from you…we certainly are following a very similar path. How did iBrance fail you??? I took one round of 21 days of iBrance but my counts dropped so low and have been slow to rise. I see my onc in August and don’t know what he plans to do next…continue with iBrance or try something else. Where do you live?? I am in Fort Myers, FL. Just lately I had 7 days of radiation on the tip of my nose to get rid of a basal cell carcinoma. They didn’t want to use the Mohs method as my counts were so low I was in danger of infection.
I forgot to ask how long my nose will remain bright red!!!!!
So glad your brain tumor is almost gone…and I’m glad to know you are there…pink sisters…
Just found your post. I retired to Fort Myers, Florida too. I’m being treated by doctors at Florida Cancer Specialists in Cape Coral. My diagnosis is recurring BC metastisis to the bone. I have been receiving hormone treatments for 2 years. Wonder if you go to the Cancer Center on Colonial near Rt. 75???? They have a support group that meets monthly. I also go to meetings with a support group at Seven Lakes on Cleveland Ave. in Fort Myers. I went to Moffet in Tampa for a second opinion and they concurred with my treatment. Doesn’t sound like you have any cancer or am I misunderstanding your post. You certainly have enough issues. How are you doing now…your post was from October!!!
Wandering…wondering if you got to Arizona this season???? How are you doing?? I have been on a timed release oxycontin 20 mg. for pain. Are you taking any pain meds???? My latest annual mammo in February indicated new calcifications in the original breast and recommended a biopsy or follow-up mammo in 3 months. My onc recommended waiting the 3 months. Not sure what that will mean.
I have metastatic breast cancer metasticised to the bone which I think is different than bone cancer. I agree that waiting so long does not seem appropriate. Your oncologist should be able to get you to a specialist sooner. I have been living with MBC for over 2 years. This past August I experienced severe pain in my hip bone. My oncologist called the radiologist immediately and I had 10 concurrent days of radiation to the spot. The pain disappeared completely. Maybe radiation would help you.
Hi Colleen…I had a fine holiday as my 2 sisters live nearby and although our kids visited this Fall, we had nieces and nephews visiting this month.I am receiving xgeva and Faslodex hormone injections once a month…two years now. Wondering if anyone else on this regimen dyes their hair. I used to color mine blond but my oncologist said probably not a good idea…although he really didn’t know for sure how doing so would affect my hair. Anyone out there with that experience???
