Lupron Injection plus Exemestane
Had stage 1 breast cancer/premenopausal prior to diagnosis. Fast forward, had done bilateral double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction. No chemo or radiation recommended. My oncologist prescribed exemestane with lupron shots (every 3 months). Two months had past since the shot and exemestane – I have such a bad side effects (general pain, muscles and joints pain and the most that bothered me the most numbing and tingling in my arms, hands and fingers). Messaged my oncologist with the pain I’m experiencing and asked her to switch me to tamoxifen. Been taking tamoxifen for a week now and the body pain decreased but the numbing and tingling in my hands has not. I’m due for another shot comes Wednesday but I’ve decided not to take it. Anyone else is having these side effects?!
