Hi Everyone. I am one of the oldies. I haven't posted much lately but do check the boards.
Just wanted to let you know that the darn bc is back again. This is the 3rd time. I have 3 lymph nodes around the aeorta that are "hot". I started herceptin and xoleta (2 pills 2x a day) for 2 weeks. Then off 1 week. Have the herceptin monthly. The cell is the same as the original bc cell was 11 yrs ago. Had all of my scans and muga. Everything else is clear. Thank God. No cancer showing anywhere else. Whew. So I get to start all over again. Not really excited about the numerous side affects from the xoleta but will deal w/ them.
What is the old saying..."Third time is a charm"??? Well I hope that this is true and this is the last time that I will have to deal w/ this darn disease.
