Anything else to take to prevent new cancer besides anastrozol? It makes me weak and joints ache.

If you are estrogen/progesterone positive, there are two other aromatase inhibitors (AIs), i.e. letrozole and exemestane. There is also Tamoxifen. Please consider making an appointment in whichever capacity your oncologist has (virtual vs in person) to discuss all your options. All the best to you.
No one seems to talk about not taking these meds. They all have awful side effects as I have tried them all. I have stopped taking them since I can hardly walk on my feet or stand up straight. Was very healthy before all of this cancer happened. My margins are clean. I am putting my life in Gods hands so I can have quality of life.
