MBC

Friday, December 19, 2014

I am about a month into learning that breast cancer has come back in my bones. MBC Metastatic breast cancer is advanced stage IV cancer that is incurable. I will be on medication for the rest of my life. The hardest thing I have a hard time wrapping my head around is that although there are some that can live 10 or more years...it's not the norm. I am looking for others that are going through the same thing and needs and wants to give support.

    emoticon I am so sorry.

I had stage II breast cancer in 2003 when I was 39. In April 2007, it returned and spread to my bones. I know the idea of being in treatment for the rest of my life was really hard for me to wrap my head around too. And the fact that it is incurable.

Last July, I learned it had spread to my liver, and most recently, to my lungs; right now though, it is very slow growing in those areas, so that gives me hope. I don't want to scare you or discourage you though, I belong to a couple of MBC support groups on Facebook and there are a few women there who have gone 10 years or longer than bone mets.

I've been through several kinds of chemo, and several rounds of radiation since I was diagnosed with bone mets almost 8 years ago now, so if there is anything you want to know, please feel free to ask me.

    I hope you have lots of members. I would but I'm already on enough teams. I love doing the munzee or geocache activity with DD and we are hoping to plan something special for my nephew and his new bride when they come to our place on their honeymoon. I think it would be sweet for them to find a momento and then to have a trackable try and make it's way back home... especially as they are located in a remote area. Hahaha, we might get them hooked.

I just ordered my activity tracker and the day after Munzee partnered with Fit Bit!!!! Ugh! I might have to get both!!! If anyone has tried both and has an opinion, I would like to hear it.

  I personally don't have either but my son has fitbit and loves it. He's had it since it first came out. Never heard of Munzee.

    Hey, nice to see you on my page. Yup, I geocache and munzie. I agree, anything to encourage moving and especially with my daughters. I had a hysterectomy 22 years ago after my last daughter was born because of endometriosis. I'm happy to add you as a friend. I do like the Spark activity tracker. I only set a goal of 5,000 steps to start and hope to gradually increase that limit but lots of days I do much more. Do you kayak? I'm a canoer at heart but I don't do the intense trips so much any more. Next trip will be in September and probably just a day long one. Hope to get some little paddles in over the summer too.
