I am interested to hear from others who may have recieved SIRT or sphere therapy.
It is Selected Internal Radiation Therapy. Small radioactive spheres are injected into the bloodstream and are taken up by the livers small vessels where they get lodged and radiate liver cancers.
I have recieved SIRT and wonder how others
have responded to this therapy.
Did it change their liver function and did they get cirrhosis of the liver.
How successful was the treatment.
Hi. I would be interested to hear what treatment was recommended for others diagnosed with bone mets. I have seen two oncologists who recommended different treatment plans. One said change the oestrogen suppressant for a month and check ca markers.If they are still raised have chemo.
The other Dr said give the new tablets a few months to take effect and check ca markers. Also have some radiation for pain relief.
My usual Dr was on holiday, that's why I saw a second oncologist.
I have been taking Arimidex for over a year but they were not holding the cancer under control anymore so I have changed to Exaccord.
- Is anyone else taking this medication?
- Have you experienced any side effects?
- How effective is it against bone mets?
I finished chemo just over a year ago. I was unlucky to have experienced some uncommon severe side effects
I spent a long visit in hospital, followed by an op and then radiation. It was a long year but I am still here and was feeling positive despite it all untill I recieved the latest news of bone mets.
I woke up with quite severe shoulder pain at 4am today and am worried it is a new site for further spread.(It's probably just a strain or something innocent).
I am trying new oestrogen suppressants for a short period but if that doesn't work it's back to chemo.
