Hi can anyone tell me why my sister who has TNBC , was told after her PET scan . “Good news the cancer hasn’t spread to other parts of your body “.Only to be told a week later “ you now have stage 4 breast cancer and there is nothing we can do , you will not be having surgery to remove the tumour “. Why was she given a glimpse of hope last week, only to be told the devastating news today. Please can anyone enlighten me as to why this might have happened.
Welcome to the forum and sorry to hear about your sister having Stage 4 triple negative breast cancer. I'm afraid I can't say why she was told that there wasn't any spread after her PET Scan only to be told a week later that she was terminal. If she feels up to it might I suggest that she contacts the breast clinic to find out why it happened. There is a family and friends forum that you can join to get support from other family members of loved ones going through cancer. The following is the link to it: Family and friends - Discussion Forum.
Best wishes to you and your sister.
