it’s been a mad month, I was diagnosed on the 9th of January with TNBC which had been treated since October as an abscess. I have had CT scan MRIS and Pet unfortunately I have a lesion on my liver pet scan pick something on my hip bone so another MRI yesterday. 
 This is all new to me I can’t sleep more than 3hours I am starting treatment tomorrow (SACT) Atezolizumad - Paclitaxel. 
has anyone had this treatment? 

  • Hi  

    I hope your first treatment of atezolizumab and paclitaxel went well yesterday and you're not struggling with any side effects today.

    I haven't had this combination, although I had paclitaxel on it's own, but noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list again.

    I've done a search in the group to see if anyone else is on this combination and found these posts for you to have a look through.

    While you're waiting for replies, it would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and treatment to date into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select '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.

  • I also have metastatic TNBC. I had a similar treatment - Pembrolizumab- last year, combined with NAB-Paclitaxel (I had had standard Paclitaxel the previous year). For me, it was highly effective in shrinking my secondary lesions (I have 2 in my liver), but I did suffer an adverse event where my immune system attacked healthy organs. As a result I had to stop treatment, but am about (I hope) to have the residual disease removed through ablation. 

  • Hi thanks yo I'm not the best with technology. I think I have done it right.

  • Oh that sounds positive. I am hoping that it shrinks the breast and a little one on in my liver.i feeling ok acfewc Sniffles, imbtrying to stay positive and learning about so many different treatment. Sending positive thought for your abalation. Please keep me updated xxxx
