Hi I had breast cancer 7 years ago and treatment, all clear and then 11 months ago found out it had returned and was in my bones. Last week after 10 months on Ribicoclib and fulvestrant found it is not working and has progressed to my liver. Devastated.  Going onto Capecitebine next week. I’m scared about everything now it has progressed.

  • Hi Mooroo,

    I'm so sorry to hear about your situation. My wife is in the same situation, but only had 1 year clear. Like you it went to her bones, and progressed to the liver. She's just started Capecitabine and Bevacizumab.

    Naturally she's scared, as you are, but I keep telling her that there are lots of drugs that she hasn't yet tried, and new drugs coming out all the time. This is giving us some hope.

    Finger crossed that Cape works for you and her!

  • Hi Boobycancer, Thank you so much for replying to my message. I’m sorry to hear about your wife but I hope she and I both respond to the new treatment. As you say hold onto that hope. 

    • Thank you so much - sorry to hear about your 4th time of treatment but thank you for giving me positive words about my new treatment plan and the support on here, I really appreciate it xx
