First post: Dx 20 yrs ago (age 35) with stage 3 lobular hormone+; treatment was 4 rounds of FAC (Adriamyacin, Cytoxin & 5FU) lumpectomy, then 4 more rounds of FAC followed by 5 weeks of radiation. Hysterectomy & oopherectomy after treatment. 5 year of Tamoxifen, then Arimidex for about 14 years... until Dx last month with lobular stage 4 , triple negative, metastasis to bones. Plan is to try Taxol weekly for 3 weeks, a week off, then 3 more weeks..... then repeat scan to see if it helps.

    I am sorry you have to go through this again! It is so disappointing that after all those treatments the beast comes back.  Stay strong and keep the faith. I hope the treatments help you! God bless!
