Sun, Mar 31 8:05am · The math of invasive breast cancer risk for LCIS in Breast Cancer

Tried anastrozole, side effects were so bad I had to stop taking it , I did not do well with no estrogen and I know I would not live to 90 and I am 64 now . It is a slow growing cancer , they said they got it all and i did 30 rads . This is also a chemo drug and I would have been on it 10
Years . Don’t let fear control your treatment

Fear is a good way to keep you on the treatment . My oncologist likes to use the fear card and you can also get king size candy bars while waiting to see the dr . Wonder why I want another dr

Thu, Mar 21 6:57am · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

I had hair thinning but was only able to take it three months . I would not worry till you try the medication because some people do well on it . And not everyone suffers the side effects . I suffered almost all and my quality of life made me rethink treatment called preventative. I decided I wasn’t ready for a nursing home at 64

Good luck with the medication , the side effects don’t start right away and not everyone is affected . I was after 2 months . Don’t stress about it now expect some side effects like horrible hot flashes . But once quality of life is affected you have to decide how you want to live . It is your life . Start exercise now before you start meds I heard it helps . God bless you and heal you
