Oct 15, 2018 · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

Yes, I worry "a little" (lot) about recurrence, but I turned down chemotherapy. Stage 2A EST receptor positive, age 68 and it was just something that I did not want to do. Statistically the change in life expectancy was small. Arimidex is my "Dumbo's Feather"….Each day I take that little pill and think it is going to keep my cancer at bay.

Happy for your input! Informative.

Best wishes, fellow Arimidex friend! I find that the Arimidex symptoms vary. Some days are pretty pain-free. I'll stay with it for the whole regimen with the hopes of no reoccurrence and wish the same for you!

THANK YOU for asking! All was well, although I needed a second x-ray to clarify something. In the end , all was OK. However, yesterday I over did it in the heat and too much exercise, so today I am really exhausted. Yesterday I really needed to be focused on something other than my mammogram today, so I paid a bit of the price today. BUT~ Now I have 9 months until my next mammogram. I am feeling so relieved.Thank you, Colleen. When do you have time to take care of all of us? SO glad you are there, my dear. ~ Fondly.Molly PS~ Time for an early and air conditioned bed time…Hubby is in Florida after we found out the results and our puppy is more than ready to head to a cool sleep.

Dawn ~Excellent explanation and support! What a great attitude ~ I am certain that the optimism helps. Your chemo sounds as though it was not so bad. Wishing you continued good health. It sounds as though you are on what we call the "Keto Diet"? I have a friend whho has done remarkably well on it.

Jul 5, 2018 · Over 70 years old starting Chemo in Breast Cancer

I am almost 69, diagnosed at 67 with Stage 2A breast cancer 18 months ago. I weighed my options and decided against chemo. Personally, I had seen several friends end up in the hospital because of chemo effects. I also saw younger friends breeze right through it, never missing work, etc. However, I feel my age (could be the 37 radiation treatments and a year on Arimidex) and decided I did not want to spend one day suffering from the chemo. Today I have my 18 month mammogram and I am filled with anxiety ! Someone wrote on the Mayo page that they felt the anxiety is worse than any aches or pains from the Arimidex and I agree! 'WIshing you the best~ Molly

Thank you Colleen. Today I had the energy to pursue one of my few hobbies ~ Taking pictures of Food Trucks at various festivals, etc. I may have walked 1/2 mile in the heat ~ Now I have 40 pictures to download and choose for my albums. I am tired but content and hoping that I can have a clean-ish bill of health after mammo tomorrow.

Just the words "Bone Scan" scare me. There are times when I can make myself busy doing something I enjoy and for brief periods of time I feel upbeat and don't focus on breast cancer ~ But those times are few and far between. Molly
