Laurie, thanks for sharing your experience. It sounds like your study was focusing on anastrozole and its effect on KI-67 levels. I’m glad that your surgery, chemo, and radiation was successful.
My tumor was estrogen 99% and progesterone 98%. The AI was given to see if decreasing hormones would control the tumor growth. Obviously it has worked, and I will probably be on AI for 5-10 years. I am having joint/bone pain but it improves after I walk each day. I have insomnia, but the worse is that I feel constantly tired instead of having the boundless energy I used to have. Ironically my KI-67 score is 49%. I asked about this but my oncologist wasn’t concerned. My Mammaprint was low risk and indicated I would have less than 1% benefit from chemo. So AI and radiation are part of my plan.
I feel like everything has spiraled out of my control and it is frustrating. Thank you for sharing your experience. I pray that you continue to heal and grow strong.
