HI -my case if different from yours in that I had double positive results with a lumpectomy, and 2 lymph nodes were positive. I had chemo and radiation and am taking hormone blocking exemastane ( and Porlia injections to stave off bone thinning). I’m interested to know what diet changes you’ve made and also what supplements you’re taking. I have been taking “greens” powdered supplements – also drank a LOT of carrot juice for about 6 months after the surgery, til I couldn’t look at another carrot. Hope all goes well for you.

I am a very healthy 74year old female and have been on Letrozole for nearly 3 yrs. with ZERO side effects.
I realize resistance to treatment with Letrozole(all AI) eventually occurs in a large number of patients. How do you
know if it’s working ?? I have been unable to find a satisfactory answer other than recurrence.

I am 64 year old female. I had bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction in 2003. I have saline implants. Recent information about encapsulation and implants degrading has become a concern. What can be done to check for problems? How concerning should this be?
