Hi Ann...I feel like this is our worse fears coming true. I also was dx in 2012 with 2 tumors in my left breast. ER positive. And now 3 months ago discovered I too have bone mets up and down my spine, in my hip, and my lungs. It truly is such a shock. How did you find out? I had lower back pain and my regular doctor thought it was an injury. Long story short...I finally went to my onc and he ordered tests, etc.
I have heard that it can take a very long time to progress, so try not to look at the stats.
Have you heard about the new drug called Ibrance? It is especially for ER positive mets and is showing a lot of promise. Please look into this!! It's pricey but there is always help.
And please know you are not alone. I know just how you feel. Lots of love your way. Karen H.
