Saw my oncologist this am. He is pleased with how I am doing on the faslodex. Haven't gotten my Ca 27.29 back yet, but my CEA remains elevated but unchanged. No more symptoms, so I am not having any scans at this time. I will see him back in 3 months.
For other ER+ with mets, I did ask about fulvestrant (faslodex) plus an aromatase inhibitor (like arimidex). He thought the study results were not significant at this time.
He is impressed with the erolimus (afinitor) added to an aromatase inhibitor) aromasin regimen. He said he has been impressed with results using this treatment in ER+ patients with mets and it would be what we would try next if my current regimen fails.
So I am stable and that is happy news to me!
