For 6 years I was on a number of oral meds and had stopped disease progression entirely. However, scans finally showed new bone mets, and for first time, mets in liver and lungs.

Lots of new bone mets, liver mets ... Show Full Comment

Mets to bones and soft tissue mass in neck. Navelbine worked great. Was on weekly treatments for 6mo. Very slight side effects only leg fatigue at about 6mo. Went off because of the leg pain, but can go back on if the current treatment (Femara) stops working. Now my cancer is stable.

Until Navelbine, nothing was helping. I was diagnosed with bone Mets (breast cancer) in 2010. The pain in my spine and legs has been off the charts. I could barely walk. I thought my life was over. This Spring I began receiving Navelbine and I felt great almost immediately. My tumors are shrinking and my energy is back!!

am currently on my 5th cycle of this medication - biggest complaint is the incredible fatigue. Nausea is dealt with easily with zofran/ativan combo. it has been keeping my cancer from growing (stable).
