Breast And Bone Cancer?

Postby Muir » Wed Feb 18, 2015 3:18 am

Hi Meg

Yes - you need to sit down and talk more about it with your mum. Breast cancer can be very slow to progress - even after it has spread to bone. I know lots of women who have had bone spread (called bone metastases) for many years and who still managed to lead a normal life. A lot of the new treatments keep it under really good control - by treatments I mean tablets like Tamoxifen or Armidex and others like them.

News like this is always really upsetting but - once you get over your distress - there will be lots you can do to help your mum. Also - you'll be amazed how normal life can be for all of you - even when you know this is going on in the background.


Go talk to your mum. It's not easy for you to do - but imagine how hard and scary it must be for her too.

Hope that helps

Gordon
