I just finished my first 3 weeks on Ibrance and had scans done yesterday. I have already developed a blood clot in my right lung and know this has to be the reason. Ive never had blood clots before, Thank god im in my week off, I will talk to my doctor next week before continuing on this medication.
Hello! I also just finished my first three weeks on Ibrance. I won't have any scans done until I've finished my second round of meds. I just received my "welcome" package from Pfizer today and read through the booklets. One mentioned Pulmonary Embolisms as a possible side effect. I would definitely call your doctor as soon as possible (which I'm sure you have by now). My WBC dropped so low that I had to end my first round a day early. My doctor wanted to reduce my dosage from 125mg to 100mg but I told him to wait until the next round is done. If this stuff can help control my cancer, I want to hit it fast and hard.
Best wishes to you! Please let me know how you're doing and what your doctor has recommended for your blood clots. Take care and HANG IN THERE!!
