I had estrogen sensitive breast cancer 6 years ago with lymph involvement. I had surgery, Chemo (TAC) and radiation. I was on Arimidex for 5 years. This Aug I was told it metastasized to my bones. I have had radiation to femurs, pelvis and back. I also had long gamma nail surgery to both femurs. I have had 2 IV treatments of Pamidronate and am on aromasin daily. The IV infusions keep me feeling like I will die before morning. This lasts about 10 days and the leg and joint pain is intolerable. Is this something that will give me a better quality and longer life? I have just started walking on my own at home but feel like I could collapse easily. Is there any chance I can get back to an independent lifestyle? Thanks.
