Metastatic Breast Cancer in Abdomen

I am a 50 year old female with estrogen positive, her2 negative breast cancer that has metastisized to my abdomen.  It is not in my kidney, lungs, brain, bone, or liver.  It is in my uterus, ovaries, bowel, and bladder with fingers extending into the abdomen.  I am very healthy and feel fine.  It has effected my bowel and bladder function somewhat.  I just started on chemo (taxol and xelona).  I am looking for anyone with similar cancer who can give me feedback on my situation including treatment options, survival rates, etc.

You might try posting on either breastcancercare.org.uk or breastcancer.org - one is English, the latter American. Both have forums for metastatic disease and they may be able to help you.
