I had a lot of joint pain on the anastrozole, but vitamin D and walking helped me with that. lI am hopeful, but realistic!

I was on anastrozole for 1 month with all-day splitting headaches and then wound up with diverticulitis! Oncologist gave me a few weeks off and am just now starting on letrozole (Femara). Hot flashes and sweats I can take, but hopig NO headaches!

@sandyjr
The fear of lymphedema is quite real. Where my medical treatment is, they have a 4-week program for breast cancer patients of strength training in the physical therapy department. They believe by doing these exercises and simple exercises with weights that lymphedema can either be minimized during episodes or one not getting it at all. I've found that it helps some with the fatigue of the AIs. We also have 2 exercise studios that offer strength training programs to breast cancer patients for free of which I will be trying to get into after completion of this one. If it is possible, check with your medical facility to see if they have such a program or your community to see if any are offered. I wish you the very best.

My advice to you would be to see your breast surgeon or gynecologist. It could be radiation effect whereupon the breast tissue hardens and can be uncomfortable and your massaging may help. HOWEVER, since it is warm, you should have it be seen.

Bilateral mastectomy is the removal of both breasts.

Not so, one breast with invasive carcinoma on the first site and neuroendocrine differentiation in the second site and lumpectomy..again, one breast.
