It’s about treatment

I was on Ibrance on and off for 6 months. I had my first scan last week and my oncologist said it was a good scan and because I continued having problems with Ibrance she was taking me off. I’m currently only taking Letrozole 2.5 mg. I’m concerned that I’m only in that one medication. Is that a common form of treatment? I have stage 4 breast cancer that’s gone to my bones.

  1. i have been on Ibrance since february 2020. the only thing i have had to do was have my doses lowered from 125 to 100 to 75 because it was dropping my WBC and ANC too low. i take this with fulvestrant. ive read that Ibrance doesnt work for everyone but when it works, it really works. i hope that your body will respond to it. have they tried something else??

    1. Thank you for sharing your experience, Mrs.Bheathain. I have heard similar things about Ibrance throughout the community. It would be so great if everything worked the same across the board for everyone. I hope that you are having a great weekend. Warmly, Shayla (AdvancedBreastCancer.net, Team Member)
