My 61 year old sister has it. She'd had a partial hysterectomy in her early 40's after a fibroid had grown too large. Her present cancer is Estrogen driven, and genetic testing was negative. She'd been stable for 5 years via hormone suppresant drugs with little side effects. Amazed the doctors. The last hormonal, aromicin, given in June, failed to deliver. She already had it in her bones, with spots on the liver and in her lung. Spots on her ovaries disappeared with the treatments. Now, with the last treatment failure, it's in her liver, bone marrow in addition to the bones. She had a chemo TX 3 weeks ago, but due to extremely low platlets and white blood count, they were only able to give her half of 2 out of the three drugs (TAC??). She had a transfusion yesterday, which helped the horrible fatigue, and is preparing for chemo again next week. Actually doing "better." I give her regular Reiki treatments. She's being treated at Yale.
My question: Is someone in this position able to be put into a remission??? We're all heartbroken and frightened for her. She wants to live.
