Hi JeanMarie...I'm so very sorry you have been dealt this news. I also was recently diagnosed with stage 4... my cancer came back in my spine too. Also my hip, pelvis and a couple spots on my lungs. I'm not familiar with liver treatment. But like Carolinapam said, the new drug Ibrance looks promising. I've been taking that for about 4 months now. My last scan showed some tumors shrinking, but a few had slight growth. I also get 2 shots every month to help rebuild bone, and an estrogen blocker.
What kind of treatment are you going to use, if you know yet. They say if one thing stops working, there is something else to try.
How did you find out? I found out about six months ago, and at times still try to wrap my head around it. Please keep us posted and all I can say is hang in there!! Stay off the internet stats because most are old and there have been advances.
My heart goes out to you...I know how scary this is. But stay strong!!! Love, Karen H.
