Re: Any lung mets survivors??

I have had lung mets appear 3 times within the last 5 years. ( my original diagnosis of BC was in 1993; I went 13 years before it metastized) 3 surgeries have been done to cut out the spots. I have been on herceptin for most of those 5 years. I also did a bit of time with Tykerb and Xeloda. I have PET scans every 4-6 months to continue to watch for new disease. My tumor markers never indicate new malignancies. I continue to lead an active life as a 6th grade teacher. I pray on a daily basis that new medications are developed to meet our stage 4 needs.
