Let's beat cancer sooner

Palbociclib

6 Feb 2018 18:57

Hello

My Mum has recently started Palbociclib and fulvestrant. I don’t know anyone else who has been on this kind of treatment and I don’t really have much faith in it. My Mum has stage 4 mets through bones, liver and lungs. She also has pleural effusion and malignant pericardial effusion. I was just wondering if anyone has experienced side effects and what your story is? Would be really interested to hear. Many thanks in advance.

Welcome to Cancer Chat, MCELS.

I'm sorry to hear about your mum's situation and I can imagine this must be a worrying time for you.

Hopefully, some of our members who have experience with the palbociclib will stop by very soon to share their stories and give advice but until then feel free to reach out to one of our cancer nurses and ask any questions you might have. They're available on this phone number 0808 800 4040, Monday - Friday between 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Best wishes to you and your mum,

Renata, Cancer Chat Moderator
