Ho Colleen, I posted a Anastrozole to the breast cancer thread before I saw this can you move it to this subject? Thanks

Thu, Feb 6 8:03pm · Completed 5 years of anastrozole. Withdrawal symptoms? Side effects? in Breast Cancer

I'm so sorry you've had to grow through all that, watched my mother and sister do that also. I don't have cancer but had some mild mutations and due to family history Oncologist wants me do take it as a preventive med. I'm healthy and still working and not sure I want to deal with side effects. Qualify for mamograms twice a year and self exams maybe a better option?

I do not have cancer but had genetic testing due to mother, sister, aunts and cousin with breast cancer. The RAD50 showed a mutation of unknown significance for breast cancer and melanoma. I had melanoma and because of family history of breast was referred to an oncologist. He wanted to put me on Anastrozole. I saw the side effects and am pretty sure after looking at these replies I don't think I want to go there! I am a healthy 67 and only meds I take is thyroid. Think I'll just be asking for trouble and since I now qualify for 2 mammograms a year and skin screening will try to stay on top of it! Would like to hear about side effects.

I had LINX at Mayo in Phoenix in 2014. Back then insurance did not cover it even though they said they would before the surgery so was 6600.00 out of pocket. I still had to take meds which was the main reason I had the surgery. I had a very difficult time after eating, bad chest pain. Finally had it enlarged in 2018 and is better but still have problems trying to burp, have to bend over to force it out. What really helped me was finding out I fructose malabsorption, once I cut out all fruit and some vegetables and sugars I finally got of all meds and probably wouldn't have needed the surgery to begin with. I was tested for it before surgery and was negative so not always accurate. Experiment with foods before surgery, I wish I had. Anyone out there that has had LINX have any long term issues?

Diet matters, gut bacteria is responsible for almost all diseases including cancers and autoimmune which include things like MS, diabetes, and many other problems. This is just now getting the attention in the medical community but still doctors haven't been trained on how to deal with this other than meds and surgery. I also regret my surgery which was very expensive. I was tested at Mayo for FM and Lactose intolerances and it was negative. After the surgery I was still unable to get off meds until I read Fast Tract
digestion. I thought fruit was good for me and love fruit especially since that's the only sweet things I had. I had cut out all wheat products and sugars years ago. Once I stopped fruit it only took a day to feel better, it ferments in my upper intestine, can't digest it! Also have you been tested for Celiac? Most people that have it are thin, you said you had problems keeping weight on. That also causes all kinds of trauma in your body. You can try cutting out all carbs for a month. Yes it's tough to do but after a few weeks the cravings get better. Don't need the vegetables for awhile just eat proteins. Can have low fat proteins if fat bothers you just remember when buying meats to make sure they are antibiotic and hormone free or you'll continue to have problems. Heal your stomach. Dr Gundry just came out with a new pre and probiotic. Usually probiotics give me bad gas and don't need help in that department! None of this is easy but once you feel better it will be worth it!

Yes, Both of Dr Gundry's books, Plant paradox and Longevity Paradox and Fast Tract Digestion, Heartburn or one for IBS.

If I cheat and have any sugar I pay for it so you'll have to decide if it's worth it! If i cheat for too many days in a row then it takes weeks to feel better, bad bacteria builds quickly and takes forever to get rid of. You will eventually get used to living without it!
