These things are a puzzle...but the anti oestrogens seem to work really well for a lot of people. Some peple get joint pains.. But it seems to vary, depending on the make. The Original trial was Femara and I found that drug really tolerable...however it is the. Most expensive version! All versions work equally well. But some have differnt buffers/coatings. Just see how yu get on
am sorry you have these tumours. yes, I haa chemo to shrink my original tumour( lobular breast lump)
it shrank it but as it was pretty large thr lump seperated and they did remove my breast.
the exciting news is that when i later got lumps in my liver and spine.....these are now rapidly shrinking with the chemo im currently on and I get very few side effects......feels nothing short of miraculous...so take heart
sometimes it takes a little while to find the ideal drug...
very best of luck on Letrozole, it worked very well for me, hang in there if you can as I believe they think 10 years is a good period to take it...they didnt realise that until later studies were done which is why i stopped too early and the cancer came back. (Some people find that a particular brand suite them better, so if you were to get an unbearable side effect you could ask to try a different one.)
let us know how it goesxx
