I am a 61-year-old with breast cancer metastasizing to the liver, nodes, and bones. I am currently on Abraxane and Herceptin. I was diagnosed 19 years back and had 15 years of no cancer. Metastasis to a few nodes was noted four years back. I have been on Taxol, Taxatore and now Abraxane. I morphed into triple positive a year ago. I know my chance of getting brain metastasis is high. A few days back at work I noticed the left side of my chin was numb. I looked it up and read horrible information that it is from the mandible or cerebellum. And the outlook was ominous. I am so frightened. My question is how serious is numbness in this condition? I can feel pain when I pinch and poke at my chin. It does not feel like when I get Novacane at the dentist. I do get Xgeva every three months, have bad sinus and vertigo problems (just recently) and am depressed and have horrible anxiety which I try to control with Xanax. I will see my oncologist in a few days for treatment. I just need some reassurance, I guess. I have no pain from any of my metastasis. Just side effects from chemotherapy. I had laboratory tests done weeks ago. I am anemic due to chemotherapy. My liver panel is normal. I am currently taking Lotrel and Zoloft.
