New Drug treatment?

Hi, I'm Mary E S.

My cancer is spreading, so new treatment is Exemestane and Everolimus. Anyone have experience with them? One is Chemo and one hormony based. Thanks. Mary

Hi Mary. I just started everolimus. Stopped Ibrance. Continuing with faslodex shots. I described mouth sores and headache in another post. How are you doing? Donna

Hi, I'm Mary E S.

SO far 0 just 2 days in however…..I am using a mouth wash twice daily to help prevent or lessen the mouth sores… you do that? Sorry you’re still taking those nasty “butt” shots!.

Hi, I'm Ashlan

Hi, I don’t know if you will see this. I have metastatic breast cancer. I take 2 Capecitabine (1000 mg), and 6 Tucatinib (300mg) every morning and every evening. A total of 16 chemo pills a day. Both of these meds. cause mouth sores and neuropathy. I have found that taking garlic gelcaps along with the chemo meds. keep the mouth sores away. I take 6 in the morning and 6 in the evening. This means 14 pills every morning and every evening.

The mouthwash and gargle are helpful, but they don’t take care of the problem. When I forget to take the garlic, I am reminded by the painful mouth sores returning.

Hi, I'm Mary E S.

Mouth sore only appear when I eat critus – so I’m keeping them at bay. Have you noticed your face looking swollen? My cheeks are so FAT!
GOing to see a Ortho specialist for my foot neuropathy….will see if they can help. Mary
