Hi all I was diagnosed with bone cancer on the 17.12.20. I have has two M.R.I and due to have ct scan on the 14th January ,my treatment will probably start soon depending on the scan.  Treatment will be oral chemo as I am 75 and they said it’s not as harsh as the other one, then have to have injection every month in my stomach. Has anybody had this.

  • Hi 

    I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet so I thought I'd drop by and see if I could help.

    Before I replied I read your profile and, if I've understood correctly, the bone cancer you mention isn't a new primary but a secondary to your breast cancer. I'm sorry if I've misunderstood but, if I haven't, I hope you don't mind me recommending that you join the secondary breast cancer group where you'll hopefully find others who are having, or have had, the treatment that you mention.

    If you'd like to do that then clicking on the link I've created will take you directly to the group where you can join and post in exactly the same way as you did here.

    Wishing you all the best with your upcoming treatment.

  • Hi , folllowing up from yours and latch brooks’ post, then it’s the same first line treatment offered to everyone with secondary breast cancer.  I have the monthly injections goserelin/zoladex and it allows me to live  normally and I’m very pleased to be on it. The treatment is manageable. 

    All the best with the start of your treatment. I hope the side effects are minimal for you and that you get to start very soon

  • Thank you for your reply Having a scan on Thursday to check other organs, medication start’s next week Palbociclib and fulvestrant and Denosumab, can you tell me when you started treatment and how did you manage it. Pam
