Hi,  I was diagnosed in April with this only mine is throughout bones.  Currently getting chemo.  Had a bump in the road with my lungs.  Yes I've been told I can survive this.  That's not to say it can't come back like any cancer.  My Pet scan was very encouraging!

I wish you all the success with y our journey and what helps me is to help others!  That brings me the most joy and that's what life is all about! Happy to chat with you anytime.

I was diagnosed in May 2014 with mets to my mandible I am taking Femara-hormone therapy. They say it isn't curable but managable there are long time survivors with bone mets and there are a lot of treatment options.

i just joined recentply after being diagnosed with 4th stage breast cancer that spread to bone in my shoulder. Initially I had breast cancer in 2007 n did the whole mastectomy, chemo radiaction n tamoxifen n completed it. Went for yearly blood tests n mammograms n ultra sound all was great til this April when I had a stiff shoulder n thought it was a frozen shoulder. But when physiotherapy didn't work then did an MRI that showed cancer in the ball of my upper arm bone. 

Radiation followed by hormone therapy now as I am oestrogen n progesterone positive. It's been 7 months n the cancer is keeping quiet n less pain in my shoulder n better mobility for my hand. My Dr is optimistic that I am responding.

It was devastating to find out the cancer returned after almost 10 years but it is what it is. I feel a bit upset that the blood work that I did were all clear with all cancer markers low but 2 months later was diagnosed with bone mets!! 

Thank God,  I have a supportive family and friends. I think we just need to keep positive n pray.
