Re: 12 years Stage 4 - Still A-OK

happy, happy birthday! You inspire me - as you did when I was first diagnosed a bit over 2 years ago and completely off my rocker with fear.
I hope I can do what you're doing -...

Re: Stage 4, need more options

I believe that by the book, TDM-1 is in order in such a case - it's second line when Herceptin / Perjeta fail you in the body (based on what my oncologist says - mind you, I'm in Canada, I believe...

Re: PSA: Get your brain scanned

Agreed. I asked, begged and threatened - my onc did not give me a brain scan. So I went to my family doc, who is the gold star of doctors - and he did. They have found 15 brain mets (albeit small...

Re: The metastatic breast cancer alliance

I'm in there as well - not sure they intended to have people from "north of the border", but I did fill in the form, and I'm "de novo"... It seems to make so much sense - to finally at least collect...

Re: Suspicion of many scattered brain mets

Re: Suspicion of many scattered brain mets

Unfortunately no good news here. Brain mets confirmed. Two 5 mm ones in the cerebellum (still horseback riding, though, which I find kind of amazing), and apparently a scattering of "points that...

Re: a cure for 90% of cancers??????????

Yes, it's yet another venue and sounds promising, thanks for posting, Lani. If you read thru what they're currently seeing with mice, it's not a cure, though. It seems to slow down and partially...

Re: Phase II MARIANNE trial results--T-DM1 treatment not superior to herceptin+taxane

But, you do not loose your hair and Taxanes (I had Docetaxel every three weeks) can be quite vicious in terms of side effects. So not sure if I'd had the choice I would not have opted for TDM-1. On...
