Mumsy · Taken for 2 to 5 years March 16, 2021

For Breast Cancer, Metastatic: “I have been on Kisqali since September 2018, with no disease progression . Tumour markers in the “normal” range. Side effects; nausea, diarrhoea, joint pain, some hair loss in the early stages, the occasional rash or skin sensitivity, fatigue. Having said all of this I am living my life, working full time and travelling when possible ....life is good!”

For Breast Cancer, Metastatic: “With Breast Cancer, Metastasis I am feeling very much better, while using Kisqali. But do have body pains but that can be manageable. Now I can easily run my job and home affairs.”

Quickbread · Taken for 1 to 6 months January 24, 2021

For Breast Cancer, Metastatic: “Metastatic BC tumour showed up behind sternum. I’ve been on medication for almost 2 months. Expected the worst but no negative side effects whatsoever. So far bi monthly blood work and ECG’s give me the green light. WBC count within range. I take 600 mg Kisqali along with 2.5 mg Letrozole. Then hit the mountain and hike for an hour. Feel great. Still work part time. I’m 65. I hope this continues.”

Thrifty · Taken for 1 to 6 months May 17, 2019

For Breast Cancer, Metastatic: “On Kisqali for breast cancer mets and after 3 rounds the tumor markers are down and one lesion in left rib has completely cleared up and another in the sternum has shrunk from 4 cm to 2 cm. Lots of side effects but minor compared to IV chemo which I had 15 years ago. Some hair loss, constipation, joint pain, blurry vision on occasion. Still give it 10 out of 10”

pluttifikation · Taken for 1 to 6 months February 7, 2018

For Breast Cancer, Metastatic: “I made it 5 rounds before my liver enzymes just wouldn't go down. It shrunk everything by at least half! My RBC and neutrophils are right on the line. Not sure what's next for me -- I was on the Kisqali/Femara combo with monthly injections of Xgeva and Zoladex. I struggled with constipation and dried out everything -- but that might be from being forced into menopause. If you happen to be on this combo: Some hair thinning, unexplained blurry and double vision, rage!, dementia, balance problems, sleep problems, and thyroid issues -- but from what I've heard, a million times easier than old school chemo. (I have had a brain MRI and it was all clear) Stage 4 de novo, ER+ Her2- Original tumor 8cms with mets to ribs and hip”
