RyB1984,

Thanks for sharing!  I'm so glad things are looking up for you and your mom.  Yes, a year can make a big difference.  Getting the port out is a big step.  Hope your mom gets to enjoy tennis again.  Stay in touch.

Hello Everyone!
I hope everyone is doing well here.

I just wanted to update you all on things.
My mom completed treatment during the 3rd week of March and she was doing so very well. No evidence of cancer.

Close to 2 weeks ago (it will be 2 weeks this coming Thursday/Friday), my mother was complaining of some shortness of breath. Last Monday, under the guidance of her primary, I brought her to the Hospital here.
They did a chest x-ray and a cat scan and the only thing they could find was fluid outside of the right lung. No new tumors or anything. Oxygen levels were always between 96%-100%.
After extracting the fluid and doing a test on every single thing......the fluid has cancerous cells (we just found out today). We ALL are so shocked. I don't even have words for this.

It's called Pleural Effusion. I've googled this (and its the worst thing I've done) and I'm not sure what to say or think. The oncologist bets money that it's her original breast cancer that moved and somehow survived. They say it can be treated and we are just awaiting the pathology report in regards to staging, no nodes on the lungs, she will have scans next week of the entire body to see if it has spread anywhere and the echocardiogram on Thursday. Port will be placed back in and she will be put on chemo again. She is being referred to the Dana Farber center in Boston.

Has anyone ever heard or dealt with this? I. am. scared. more than anything for her. Although she's shocked and trying to wrap her head around this, Her spirits are most certainly still up and she is determined to fight. The oncologist did say it can be treated.
Any useful information would be great guys. I'm even coming to you all for cyberhugs.

RyB, after reading about your Mom's story, I want to cry. Everything looked so promising - but it sounds like there is still hope. Please hold on to that. Sending you and your Mom a big hug from Virginia! Please keep in touch.

I'm so sorry to hear of this setback. Oncologists are working to find agents to treat lung cancer mets originating from breast cancer, I wish I had a suggestion, please know we are thinking of your Mom and all your family.
