    My wife has stage 4 secondary breast cancer. Was diagnosed about 18 months ago, had ibrance, paclitaxel and now on capecitabine. Apart from hair loss on paclitaxel she's been fine. I know it's a shock and nothing can prepare you, but there are treatments around and hopefully you'll find 1 to suit.

  • Hi Hope1955,

    Sorry to find you here but hopefully you will find reassurance and positivity from the posts on here. I don’t know of course what was said in your meeting when you received your diagnosis but myself, I have Secondary Breast Cancer in the bones and it’s treatable but not curable.  It is classified as Stage 4 but that is because the cancer has spread or metastasised. I think once you have a treatment plan in place you will hopefully feel you can look ahead to a future which may involve regular hospital appointments but still gives you a quality of life to enjoy. 

    Best wishes to you xx.

    I’m so sorry to hear this. Have you been able to have any treatment yet? Do you have support from your family?
