I had the results of my latest MRI scan yesterday. I have been on hormone therapy - aromatase inhibitor Letrozole - since the end of June. The news is encouraging. The tumour on the right hand side of my pelvis has shrunk so that it is not visible. The tumour on the left has also shrunk, but is still visible. The tumours had beeen pressing on one of my ureters and constricting it, but that has now resolved and the kidney is draining freely. So I don't now need to have a stent inserted to keep it open.
Considering that my oncologist had originally said that she would be happy if the hormones just kept things stable, we are all very happy that the result is better than that. So the plan is to stay on the hormones and to scan again in 6 months, to see what is happening. No way to tell at the moment whether things will stay the same, or improve or worsen. However I am hopful that things will at least remain stable.
I am feeling great - no pain or symptoms other than hot flashes, a little minor aching in joints and some fatigue. But nothing that stops me enjoying every day and leading a normal life.
Kindest wishes to everyone
