Good luck. I think I can stick with exemestane for another 4 years. I'm pretty sure I would not have stuck with anastrozole that long – I was at 7 months & the hand pain was unbearable. It's still there but tolerable. What were your side effects on exemestane?

Kathy, I don't think I gave Exemestane a fair trial. i was on it for only a couple of weeks. I was having excruciating neck pain so my doctor advised me to go off it for ahile, and make an appt. to see her. The fact is, I still have bad neck pain, but I have osteopenia, so it might not have been due to the Exemestane. I also began feeling very tired while on it. I'm just worried about the possible side effects of Tamoxifen. I'm feeling like I'd rather endure the joint pain and fatigue, than risk blood clots and other effects of Tamoxifen. I have 3 more years t be on the drugs.
