Re: 11 Years bc, 10 Year with mets

I was originally diagnosed with b/c in 2003. I found out it had metastized to my bones in 2008. Since then I have undergone different forms of therapy including Herceptin, Taxol, radiation. Herceptin held the mets at bay for three years and then stopped working. I am now on Xeloda and Tykerb and doing fine. When I was first diagnosed my kids were 2 and 4, today they are 12 and 14 and I am going strong. I don't think anyone should put a limit on someone's life. Everyone is different. I was told I had two years, it's been 10 and I expect to be around for 10 more. With today's treatment, metasized b/c is no longer a definite death sentence.
