Tue, Jun 23 11:41am · Aromatase Inhihibitors: Did you decide to go on them or not? in Breast Cancer

Hello, I do not have cancer but have a family history of breast, mother and sister, father lymphoma ect. I had a complete genetic testing done and showed a mutation of unknown significance for breast and melanoma. I had melanoma . I was sent to an oncologist who wants to put me on Aromatase as a preventive. I'm 68, healthy active and still working and last thing I need are all these side effects I've read about just in case I get it. Not sure I want to go that route but I do get 2 mammograms and ultrasounds a year and have regular spot checks for my skin. It's been a tough decision but writing to hear from someone who has used it to prevent. Thanks for your info.

I read that also and it's what cured me!! I had LINX surgery and was still on meds until I read his book and cut out fructose including fruit which I thought was good for me! No meds since, it's been about 3 years now! If I cheat I can suffer for weeks! Yes FODMAP did nothing, the Fast Track
Diet I read was for Gerd but also have one for IBS.

I can't digest any fiber including from fruits and some vegetables, I'm very regular but any fiber or fructose will have me sick for several days.

It doesn't take much to have it come back, I can't eat fructose including fruit, a few days of cheating, like Christmas, and I'm sick for a few months. I just go back on my Strick diet and it eventually it goes away.

Try 500 mg of Magnesium Citrate before bed, it will also help you sleep.

I had genetic testing that's what got me here. Although negative for mutations I had a mutation of unknown significance for breast cancer so oncologist is not sure what it means but because of family history thought I should take the drug. When he talked about side effects he had another drug to counter it. I don't take prescription drugs and really don't want to start down that road.

So far not, I have mammograms twice a year and hopefully if I have to get cancer will catch it early? I'm an international flight attendant and put in 14-16 hour days and can't afford to be tired and nauseous. Most people I have talked to that have to take these drugs have side effects. But welcome all input!
