Had breast cancer 2 years ago.Has come back in my hip, pelvis and spine.With oncologist on Monday to discuss Hormone treatment which sounds quite a severe cocktail of drugs.Was diagnosed with arthritis at the end of October last year, after many phone calls were given a scan and told it was Pagett's disease. Finally, another month and another scan later were told it was cancer. Not impressed.
Hi Mark and a very warm welcome to the online community.
I'm very sorry to hear that you've recently been diagnosed with secondary breast cancer. It must be an incredibly hard time for you and your family and I can understand you wanting to get away for a break with your wife and family.
The community is divided up into cancer specific groups so could I recommend that you join the secondary breast cancer group where you can ask questions, share experiences and get support from others who will understand what you're going through.
To join just click on the link I've created and then choose 'join this group' on the page that opens. You can then introduce yourself and post questions after selecting 'start a discussion' and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.
When you have a minute it would be useful if could pop something about your journey so far into your profile as it really helps others when answering or looking for someone with a similar diagnosis. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Edit Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.
Whatever cancer throws your way, we’re right there with you.
We’re here to provide physical, financial and emotional support.
