Hello Judeworth, I too had WLE, 4 nodes removed (clear) and 15 zaps of radiotheropy in 2015 so have been on Anastrozole for almost 3 years now. I had a blood test which included liver function last summer and my doc said it had been 'borderline' (whatever that means) when I saw him yesterday for a review. However, it hadn't been a fasting blood test so I'm having one of the those in a couple of weeks time to get a more accurate result. My cholesterol will be checked again too as that had gone up. I like your comment about "on top of everthing else" - my pre-op blood test showed I had an underactive thyroid so been taking Levothyroxine along with the Anastrozole!

I'm sorry you haven't yet received a reply to your post and do hope you get a response soon - hopefully this will help to bump it back up.
All the best with your appointment tomorrow.

Hi everyone xx
Has anyone on here had a problem with their liver function tests while taking hormone therapy, I started out with Letrozole in July, awful side effects with my hands so in November they changed me to Extremestane and they are still as bad, i recently had two blood tests and liver function has gone down again !
So at this moment in time I feel like chucking it in the bin the Extremestane that is!
I spoke to breast cancer nurse they said about taking Tamoxofen, I’m 58 had grade 2 lumpectomy in May 2017 no lymph nodes involved , followed up with 15 rads.
I go back to my GP tomorrow to discuss options but would love to hear if anyone else has had liver problems on top of everything else!
