I had breast cancer in '95 and now have recurrence of the same cancer in the lungs. I am being treated w/ Arimidex. Has anyone gone through this? Any information would help.

Though this hasn't happended to me I do have a friend that had this same thing..in fact two friends. Both are doing well after surgery and treatments...take care and make sure you find the best care (medical) that you can. It is so very important as you must know have already been there with breast cancer...

Hi Maria Guadalupe,
I also was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2000, but am now awaiting a biopsy of my lungs. I had a pet scan and it looks like that is what I have. I don't know the drugs for lung cancer yet, but I know I will soon be doing some research on the internet. All you have to do is type in the drug name and it will tell you exactly what it does, etc. I wish you strength and an awsome recovery as we progress through this.

Hello, Pura, I am glad to hear from you and Pacisan, I'm sorry I don't know my way around the computer yet I hope you receive my message, both of you. I am trying to get a 2nd opinion I'm very frustrated with Kaiser. Pacisan thanx for your advise on gettting the best medical care, I have been slow in reacting w/my diagnosis, I thought well they know what they're doing and well it doesn't seem like it. Pura, the Cancer Society has given me info on the medication and I feel good about that, now I am tackling other problems with Kaiser. I saw the Dr. this is the second Dr. I see and she wants to start me on chemo this Tues. 8/26, if I need to I will but I would rather not. I have multiple small tumors but the Drs. seem optimistic because the cancer is slow progressing. In 95 I got chemo CMF, Radiation 26 days and 4 years of tamoxifin. My left breast was algo removed. So far I've had numerous tests done and am trying to get more information. I'm trying to contact Revlon Breast Cancer Center for the 2nd opinion. Thanx Maria Guadalupe
