I tell at least one person per day how grateful I am that we travelled to Mayo for my husband. I would be a widow already if it weren’t for the amazing people at Mayo.

I have also had a little anxiety, no noticeable relief from joint and bone pain yet. I am on Zoloft so that hopefully will keep me from getting too far out there while I withdraw. Please connect with someone, anyone if it gets out of control. Please also report this withdrawal symptom, as I will, this will benefit other folks who withdraw in the future.

5 days ago · Surgery for Calcifications/Cancer from Calcifications in Breast Cancer

I am sorry you are in this situation! Is there a cancer center near you, where you can go for a second opinion? You get to choose where that happens and I always suggest outside the local network if possible. Also please go to one of the breast cancer advocacy sites and you can gain a wealth of information there. Now to your primary question, calcifications might not be cancer. Calcifications can be pre cancer, and a cluster of them certainly should be looked at closer. Better to stop it before it has a chance to get started, if it is those kinds of changes. They frequently cannot answer that until it is under a microscope. Sadly this type of lack of communication is too common, I ask doctors to be blunt, it serves us both and builds trust.
This is just one place where you can read good information on line.

Sun, Oct 27 11:07am · Completed 5 years of anastrozole. Withdrawal symptoms? Side effects? in Breast Cancer

Just completed 10 years, and quit 12 days ago, a little fatigue but my doc said to please call him in one month and report as long as there is no major issues. The bone pain I have endured for 10 years is moderate most days, but not enough to make me quit. I am hoping this will all subside soon.
