In March of 2006 I was diagnosed with hormone breast cancer stage 3.They removed the tumor. (did not spread out) In June I received chemiotherapy (taxotere and a combination of 5-FU,Cytoxan,Elience) every 21 days. In November I started 34 radiotherapy and in Feb. 2007 I started one year of herceptin. In Feb. 2008 I started with tamoxifen daily. Now in Oct. 2010 I was diagnosed right breast cancer again. It was in the same spot that I received the radiation therapy. I had a partial macectomy. The biopsy came. A complete different type of cancer. No radiation link. In Dec. 2010 I started with taxotere every 21 days and this Feb. 2011 I will continue with taxotere plus carboplatin for three more chemiotherapy every 21 days. If anyone had what I have?

Myrna, I am sorry that you once again are in a battle with the beast! Sometimes things just aren't fair!

The good thing (from what I understand) is that this is a "new" cancer and is not a situation in which the original cancer has metastasized. They will be able to approach this much as they did the last tumor and have good success.

I have not had any experience with chemo, so I am not a good one to "share" this with. May I suggest that you post on the main Breast Cancer Community? There is much more traffic on that one and you are more likely to hear from others concerning your particular path on this journey.

Meanwhile, know you will be in my thoughts. Let us know how you are doing. Okay?
