Well, she has four spots on her bones, two ribs (7 & 10), one on the neck and one on hip bone. The dr says all outside doesn't appear to have made it to marrow. After all the tech talk and med speak the dr. said to simplify the discussion on a scale of 1 - 10 (1 best & 10 worst) she is a 4.

Prescribed Aromasin (exemestane tablets)and setting up radiation treatments to begin.

The dr asked if she would be interested in a trial and take another drug thru IV, can't recall name right now, but she would either be taking the drug every 30 days or 90 days. It would be a random selection. There are two groups, the 30 day and the 90 day.

She seems to be reluctant to be a guinea pig, her words.

Zometa? Does that sound right? Any personal experience with trials and this drug?

The word cancer leaves a heavy weight on the patient and the family. It is by and with the help, encouragement and support from all of you thus far that has made this a bit more bearable. My gratitude is immeasurable.

With respect and admiration,
VV
