Hi my name is Donna. I am 63 and have just been diagnosed with invasive globular carcinoma with boney mets. I had a DCIS in the right breast in 2004 which proved non invasive post hookwire surgery and in 2008 another DCISin left breast which also proved negative of cancer cells. It has been a terrible shock to find now I have bone mets from breast cancer with the breast being the primary. Apparently 10% of cancers go undetected depite mammograms carried out regularly and unfortunately it is the lobular ones that go in that basket. I am now having radiation for the pain in my sternum and am going on Femera and having an injection once a month to strengthen my bones. Just started radium today for two weeks on my sternum which is the only area I have pain at the moment. Am on pain killers until that kicks in. I am happy to join this group and hopefully it will be a great support on my journey.
