Australian Trish

I would just like to send my best wishes to Trish she is always so supportive of everybody on here and has spent a lot of time sending positive messages to a lot of us. Trish is struggling a bit in the fight against her mets and I'm sure she would love to hear some positive messages.

Have a great Christmas Trish, I will be sending positive vibes to you and all my Her2 sisters.

Best wishes to all

Jenny xx

I would also like to send good wishes to Trish who is always so caring to others. Just wanted to say hang on as recent posts are showing lots of promise with pertuzumab which will hopefully also get approved in Austrailia soon.

Re: Australian Trish

Trish,
I'm so sorry to hear those mets are giving you trouble. You're in my prayers, my friend. I hope your docs find the right cocktail of meds to make 2012 a happier year for you.

And, I hope you're feeling up to posting again soon. I've missed you!

Merry Christmas, Trish!

Re: Australian Trish

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I am so touched you are thinking of me . I haven't been on the HER2 website so much lately as I have busied myself with other things. Despite my liver behaving badly I am still feeling well most of the time -with a bit of help from 1 mg of Dexamethosone a day-I have a love hate relationship with that drug but at this dose it is good for my energy if not for my sleep and I am not TOO much of a monster. I am having the most wonderful relaxing Christmas over here, full of family, friends and traditions in a very warm and balmy atmosphere. It probably would be a very strange atmosphere for those of you who have the delights of White Christmases but it is the kind of celebration we have grown to love. I don't really think there is any more treatment for me as my timing was exquisitely bad. Just as the THERESA trial arrived my liver function tests precluded me and I was going to have radiation spheres and chemo embolisation but I was about a couple of months too late for that and my bilirubin is rising. So objectively not looking good. But I feel well and happy so I'll just go where the path leads me but I won't stop putting pressure on my doctors to explore options. Thanks again to all of you and I hope you have much health in 2012.
Trish

Thyroid Eye Disease. 2003. Decompression surgery in 2009; eyelid lowering surgery in 2010.
Diagnosed: June 2010, liver mets. ER-/PR+10%; HER2+++.
July 2010: Begin Taxol/Herceptin. Eliminate sugar from diet. No surgery or radiation.
January 2011: NED
April 2011: Progression in liver only. Other previous affected areas eradicated. Stop Taxol/Herceptin after 32 infusions.
May 2011: Brain MRI: clear.
May 2011: Begin Tykerb daily, Xeloda twice per day for one week on, one week off, and Herceptin.
November 2011: Progression in liver. All other tumors remain eradicated.
December 2011: BEGIN TRIAL #09-093 Taxol, MCC-DM1 (T-DM1), Perjeta.
Trial requires scans every six weeks, bloodwork and infusions weekly.
Brain MRI: clear.
January 2012: NED. Liver mets, good riddance!
March 2012: NED. Developed SMA (rare blood clot) in intestinal artery and loss of sight in right eye due to optical nerve neuropathy. Resolved when Taxol removed this month.
Continue Protocol of T-DM1 weekly and Perjeta every 3 weeks.
May 2012: NED.
June 2012: Brain MRI: clear.
June-December 2012: NED.
December 2012: TRIAL CONCLUDED; ENTER TRIAL EXTENSION #09-037. CT, Brain MRI, bone scan: clear. NED.
January-March 2013: NED.
June 2013: Brain MRI: clear. CEA upticking; CT shows new met on liver.
July 3, 2013: DISASTER STRIKES during liver ablation: sloppy surgeon cuts intercostal artery and I bleed out, lose 3.5 liters of blood, have major hemothorax, and collapsed lung requiring emergency resuscitative thoracotomy, lung surgery, rib rearrangement and cutting deep connective tissue, transfusion. Ablation incomplete. This life-saving procedure would end up causing me unforgiving pain with every movement I make, permanently, otherwise known as forever.
July 26, 2013: Try Navelbine/Herceptin. Body too weak after surgery and transfusion. Fever. CEA: Normal.
August 16, 2016: second dose Navelbine/Herceptin; CEA: Normal. Will skip doses. Watching and waiting.
September 2013: NED, Herceptin only. CEA: Normal. Started Arimidex.
October-November 2013: NED. Herceptin and Arimidex. CEA, CA125, 15-3: Normal.
December 2013: Something brewing. PET lights up on little spot on liver; CEA upward trend, just outside normal. PET and triphasic liver scan confirm Little Met. Restart Perjeta with Herceptin, stay on Arimidex. Genomic sequencing completed for future treatments, if necessary.
January 2014: Ablate Little Met on the 6th. Happy New Year.
March 2014: Brain MRI: clear. PET/CT reveal liver mets return; new lung mets. This is not funny.
March 2014: BEGIN TRIAL #10-005 A(11)-Temsirolimus plus Neratinib.
April 2014: Genomic testing indicated they could work, they did not. Very strange drug combo for me, felt weird.
April 2014: Started Navelbine and Herceptin. Needed something tried and true, but had significant progression.
June 2014: Doxil and Herceptin.
July 2014: Progression. Got nothing out of it. Brain: NED.
July 2014: Add integrative medical hematologist-oncologist to my team. Begin supplements. These are tumor-busting, immune system boosters. Add glutathione, lysine and taurine IV infusions every three weeks.
July 2014: Begin Gemzar, Herceptin & Perjeta. Happy.
August 2014: ECHO perfect.
January 2015: Begin weekly Vitamin D Analog infusions. 25 mcg. via port.
February 2015: CT: stable.
April 2015: Gem working, but not 100%. Looking into immunotherapy. Finally, treatments for the 21st century!
April 2015: Penn Medicine. Dendritic cell immunotherapy.

Re: Australian Trish

Hey Trish,

All the best to you and your family for the rest of the holidays. Sounds like you have been having a lovely time in the sun. I think I could get used to "Dreaming of sand for Christmas." Sending good vibes and good wishes to you. May new meds keep coming and may good doctors keep using them to help you and all of our friends. Pet that cute doggie for me!
