BERT2011 (Bugger, Estrogen Receptive Tumor)….

Metastic breast cancer at 38

The Sh*t has hit the proverbial

Well it’s been a while and I wish I had better news, but I’m afraid the trials from last year have been un successful and the Epirubicin that I had from November has also been unsuccessful. Tumours in my liver have grown, the fluid on my lung has increased and I’ve just started the last available chemo drug- Vinorelbine. Which I’m told only has a 10% success rate. On the upside no New tumours have grown however my oncologist looked worried.

I asked the horrible, no guarantee, awful question of how long… the answer is hopefully 6 months. Which is shocking and upsetting, and I’m stubborn so hoping I can sneak out a bit longer.

The plan now, ask if there are any phase 1 trials in Manchester or Cambridge, carry on with this weekly chemo ( tablet if I can manage it) and scan again in 10 weeks.

I’m also being referred to the respiratory clinic in Sheffield to see how bad this lung is and if it can be drained, not a nice process but one I will undertake if it makes life easier.

Broken leg update… healing well and other that initial blip of me thinking I was super woman I think I’m doing ok, 5 weeks since surgery and it’s coming.. need to focus on getting normal movement back now ASAP.

Jonathan, family and friends as always being incredibly supportive ….thankyou and I hope going forwards now we can just concentrate on making some memories.

Love to all…. Jane
