First: Is it me or is this site gotten really really slow. 

My wife's case is very complex. At one point she had 3 different breast cancers at once. In her right breast was a large ER/PR+, 100% estrogen, Grade 1 tumor. Inside that was an ER/PR+ 30% grade 3 tumor. In 9 of her 19 lymph nodes removed was triple negative metaplastic breast cancer. Lifetime AC and radiation got rid of that mess. Some 18 months of various estrogen blockers failed to stop the cancers return. A biopsy was done on a metastasis to her hip which showed it 2% ER/PR+ and the rest TNBC.

She was on capecitabine (Xeloda) for about 18 months and that kept her extensive spinal and hip metastasis in check. Eventually, it stopped altogether. Next, her oncologist tried eribulin (Halaven). He related that it seemed to work well when capecitabine failed. Wow, did it work! He last PET scan from last Friday showed her completely clear of cancer. NED! That was a tough weekend though; waiting for the results.
