Hi,

If you hover your curser over Marcia's name to the left where her avatar is you'll get a drop down menu giving you a choice of sending her a private message so you could contact her that way if she doesn't see your post here.

Hi Bev, I'm so sorry for your dx, you sound very positive which I'm sure helps a lot. There are a few members here with mets to bones and doing well, I hope you have a great response to treatment and keep us posted.


Just a fyi, you may prefer to change your user name rather than post your personal e mail address, we often find its better to send someone a private message rather than type your e mail where anyone can see it.Pals

Hi Tricia. -- I have tried to change my username but not getting a response. I do need to change that but what I've done is not working. It allows me to change password but not username

I think the admin in Komen are the only one's that can do this for you, will you try sending an e mail to the address in the above message and ask them?  It'll be Monday before they respond though as there's no one in the office over the weekend.

P.S  I've e mailed Komen admin for you and they will be in touch to help you next week!

Hi everyone! I am new to this website and forum. My 62 year old mom was just diagnosed with triple negative metastatic breast cancer. She had a <2cm primary tumor (right breast at 7 o'clock) and 20 lymph nodes under her arm removed (only 3 were positive for cancer cells). The pathology report from the surgery indicated that lymph vascular invasion was present. Her cancer was considered grade 2 from the core biopsy report, but is now grade 3 from the surgery report. Since the surgery, she has had a CT scan & bone scan of her body (head CT upcoming). The oncologist told us that a spot was found on her L4 pedicle that had a high uptake, which makes them suspect it's metastasized cancer from the breast. She has no physical symptoms of this (ie. no pain). Therefore, she has been diagnosed with Stage IV metastatic breast cancer - without treatment she has maybe 1 year, with treatment maybe 2-3 years as the cancer is extremely aggressive. The oncologist felt that it had been present for less than a year before it was caught. My question is - how likely is it that the spot found in the CT/bone scan on her L4 pedicle is breast-to-bone cancer? My understanding is that bone mets don't usually show up for a good length of time from the initial diagnosis and breast cancer tends to invade the visceral organs first. And if the cancer is, in fact, that aggressive, shouldn't we expect to see more mets in more than one spot right now? Thank you in advance for your time
