Hormone's for metastice breast cancer in bone marrow
If your friend's tumor is Estrogen receptor or Progesterone receptor positive, then hormonal therapy is a good option. The IV treatments that she's receiving maybe what we call "bisphosphonates" that aims to reduce bone loss due to the metastasis of cancer. For pure bony metastasis (no metastasis to liver, lungs, or other organs), then it is true that some patients do live quite long. The side effect of this IV treatment is usually fever during the day of administration, and kidney toxicity if not monitored. This IV treatment can also lessen the pain caused by the bone metastasis.
