Metastatic Breast Cancer in My Liver
Last updated: June 2023
In 2020 I began to have severe lower backaches. I called an ambulance to ER. Had CT scan, liver was pushing on my spine and a large mass was inside my liver. Next I was seen by an oncologist, first, triple negative breast cancer.
Some not so great treatment experiences
I had a few treatments with Abraxtane, suspended as liver enzymes were going high. Dr. then used Ketruda, but had to be off this as needed a broncoscope. After scope, had CT scan; cancer growing back in liver. Then, Enhertu 2 treatments, nasty side effects lasted 11 days after 2 treatments. Won't take Enhertu again. I don't know what to do. MBC is not curable. Thought about not having any further treatments.
What does the future hold?
I am 77 yrs. old, a widow, husband passed June 24, 2021. One son, married with twin daughters. Has been estranged from me & (husband) 8 yrs & haven't seen twin granddaughters since 2nd grade, they are 16 yrs. old now. I live with a niece, the only relative I have; she is very, caring, kind & helpful. I also have a 10 yr. old Papillon dog who is very attached to me. I become very sad to pass away thinking of my devoted dog. I pray healing scriptures often.
Thank you for reading my story.
Advanced breast cancer is an isolating and lonely disease.
