First ..I am SO very very very sorry to hear of your diagnosis. Its so UNfair!!!!
We are new to the whole cancer thing..my mom diagnosed last month with breast cancer.
I want to know what the answer is to your question! if the breast was removed, you had radiation & chemo, then I am totally totally confused as to how it can come back!! And..so fast! I hope you get a very detailed response from the doctor here on this forum.
I wish you the very best...take care...

Hi,

I just wanted to say that I think it would be hard for them to limit you to a couple of years. I have a friend who has bone involvement and beyond and it has been under control for quite some time. After being treated for the bone mets her docs told her that although they can not say that she is cured, they no longer see the bone cancer anywhere on her scans! Of course I am not a doc but in many cases bone cancer can be controlled. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. We are all here for eachother and that includes you! Best wishes.
