Hi jeannie53. I've been on anastrozole for about 3 months now and have very few side effects. I have a few aches in the knees but I don't even need a pain killer. I noticed my equilibrium is a little off (almost fell off the deck). But all in all, not bad at all. Takes me awhile to fall asleep too. But considering the alternative, I will keep taking it. I would rather live with a few aches and pains than not! Good luck to you.

Yes I think I will. But it's weird. It hurts first thing in the morning when I sit up in bed or bend over to put on socks or whatever and then it doesn't hurt as the day goes on. Weird. Thank you for replying.

Thanx sandyjr. I have been feeling fairly well too and am on anastrozole. Few aches and pains but that could be old age lol. I will take your advice and if it isn't any better by the weeks end, I will see my gp. I hope everything goes well for you too. I hate this horrible thing that has affected our lives forever. I am on anti anxiety meds too which have helped a lot. I try to take one day at a time and thank God I wake up each morning. Peace and healthy karma sent your way.

Hi. I have gone thrum lumpectomy and lymph node removal as well but I have never heard of "tumour markers". Once I completed chemo and radiation, my oncologists told me I didn't need to see them anymore and just to see my regular dr. I have a mammogram scheduled in September but reading all this stuff I'm starting to worry that I should still be seeing the oncologists. What do you think? Plus it's been about 10 months since my surgery and just in the last week or so my breast has been really sore especially when I wake up in the morning. It's quite warm to the touch and a bit hard. Should I be scared?
Hi again. Yes I've had the dryness everywhere too. But I'm just so glad all the chemo and radiation is done, that I'm trying not to complain too much cause I figure I've gotta be on this lousy drug for five years, make the best of it. I actually had the strength to bake cookies today. Haven't baked anything in a year! Kwanless, I hope things start getting easier for you. Hang in there. You can do this.
