6 days ago · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

@kathyomaha55 I start the at the wellness center this week..
I was surprised when he laid in to me about my weight because he had told me 6 months before I would gain with the hysterectomy plus I had started walking and wearing a fit bit; so I was doing 5,000 to 15,000 steps a day!
Good luck on the meds! I could not stand the cloudiness, the aches, the high BP.
We all stand together for support!

@kathyomaha55 I did 20 radiation only, my score was 19. Because we had so much breast cancer in family (all 5 maternal great aunts had but in their later years) and the mutation and I am NOT taking any cancer meds (terrible side effects), I believe my oncologist is playing it safe? I just changed oncologist from Sanford Sioux Falls, he called me morbidly obese and weak and I think he was upset I did not want to be a part of his research study. So, my new oncologist is so different and open. He even said my cancer was so close to stage 0. I am going through Avera cancer center

@kathyomaha55 I was stage 1 IDC
2 lymph nodes out and clear, marginal tissue clear, Er and Pr positive, HERS negative, and had a hysterectomy because my tumor was oncotyped and found to have a RAD51C (I think) mutation.

@francine6829 and @sparklegram my oncologist has me have a mammy + ultrasound every year and a mri with contrast every year. So every 6 months I'm getting a checkup. I asked him for how long and he said the rest of my life…

@kathyomaha55 I began exemestane no muscle or bone problems at all. But my blood pressure took off. I was on 3 weeks only.

No oncotype of your tumor?

@modonnellreynol I do not know your circumstances or age….so
I offer only my experience. I was Stage 1A breast cancer hormones positive, Hers negative, BUT because of so much breast cancer in our past generations my tumor was sent to be oncotyped and found to be RAD51C positive, which leads to possible ovarian cancer. I am 65 and had a total laparoscopic hysterectomy/ oophorectomy. I guess in a way you can call it prophylactic because I was having no problems there!
I had 2 csections so I thought I was ready for the after effects, HA! Not fun! Long healing time!
Good luck to you….ask any questions!
