Fri, Jan 3 7:38am · Depression and cancer diagnosis in Cancer: Managing Symptoms

Many people suffer from depression. Sadly the outside public see a person who looks healthy but they do not see the inner pain. I sat and cried two to three times a day for what I thought was no good reason. The reason was depression. Thanks heavens for a good physchologist who dismissed me after about six months. I still feel a bit overwhelmed at times, but I can now function as a normal person again. There is no stigma to seeing a doctor for your mental health.

To all on this post – as a pancreatic and metastatic breast cancer survivior I have done what you have redone – western (chemo, radiation, surgeries), plus supplements, essential oils, plant based diet, acupuncture, essiac tea, and lots of prayers from all faiths, I am now NED. Trust in a higher power is helpful. Mayo doctors all agree that nutrition and acupuncture are helpful in healing from cancer! Have a blessed holiday season.

Faslodex. Sorry about that

Dec 17, 2019 · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

I could not take any stomp tase inhibitors. The pain and side effects were too intense and I was too close to going to the er. Mayo recommended galoshes, which is a monthly injection – one shot in each buttock. The only side effect is the day I receive the shot I am very fatigued and sleep in the afternoon. My body seems to be doing well on this. It is different for everyone, but worth asking about

Nov 20, 2019 · Concerned about the side effects of anastrozole in Breast Cancer

i was on anastrazole for 5 days and Mayo had me stop it completely the side effects were very severe. i was quite nervous about taking other aromotase inhibitors because my reactions were so severe. They started me this year on Faslodex, which is a monthly shot. thus far my reaction is fatigue the day of the shot and a sore tush as it is a thick shot. tylenol helps to relieve the pain and my tush only hurts for a day or two. somewhat new on the market, but it works for me. upside is it only once a month. downside is that as i am so sensitive to estrogen that i must get it every 28 – 30 days. for those of you who take aromotase inhibitors it may be worth looking into this if your side effects are not tolerable.

I cannot take any of the AI’s due to severe side effects, while I had no side effects of tamoxifen. You May wish to ask you oncologist about faslodex. It is a shot once a month and the only side effects I have experienced is fatigue for two days and an occasional mild hot flash. For insomnia try CBd, and if you can get medical marijuana try to get the CBd with thc. It helps with sleep and anxiety.
