Re: Lextrozole working

Diagnosed with secondary in lungs on Thursday before finishing rads. Already on Letrozole, and after reading these posts I can see why my Onco was pleased I had started, and very positive. Feeling a tad better, and have come out from under the duvet! X

Re: Lextrozole working

Got the results from my ct scan yesterday. After being on letrozole for 3 months. My tumours are stable and no new ones. Back for a ct scan in another 3 months.

Re: Lextrozole working

Fantastic news. I started on letrozole 8 weeks ago after 6 cycles of chemo. I hope it keeps my tumours at bay too. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Lextrozole working

Hi.  Thought I would add to the post I started.  The Lextrozole is still working - I got my scan results back yesterday.  Nothing has changed and all is stable.  I was hoping for a reduction like last time but am happy with stable and my oncologist was happy.  Looking forward to 2017 - my 50th birthday is in June and never expected when I got diagosed when I was 45 that I would see 50 but now I feel I will.  xxx

Re: Lextrozole working

Hi,

 

I just wanted to share that I saw my oncologist today ( having been on Letrizole since March 2015) and she confirmed that my secondaries are responding to the drug and I don't have to go back and see her now until mid January 2017. Obviously I'm very happy and hope this gives inspiration to others who may be offered this drug.

Re: Lextrozole working

Hi

i have been on letrozole for 7 months but now it has stopped working, I am now habing radiotherapy on one of my tumours it sits just below my right breast on ribcage so I was able to check its growth it is now 5cm in diameter I went last week to be marked up but they decided to make a mask for the area which I was pleased about as I was marked previously 6 years ago. then they decided not to give it in that area so I was left with the black dots that look like blackheads which i am conscious of if I wear my swimming costume. When I finish the radiotherapy they will discuss my next hormone treatment if any left. Sorry for any typo's but it will not let me go back and change them

Re: Lextrozole working

Thank you for posting this as I am a letrozole lady and worry that after four months it's not working for my Mets. 

It's lovely to see success stories.

Hugs xxxxx

Re: Lextrozole working

That's great news! Letrozole completely cleared my lung mets after 18 months and worked for 4 years! Things have changed in the last year but I got 4 years with no SE, no symptoms! Hopefully the same for you
