hi is any one taking letrazole or know anything about it?
I took Femara (letrozole) for nine months - for three months prior to surgery. My surgery was delayed because of other medical problems so my treatment with Femara shrank the tumour so the planned surgery was not as radical as was originally plaaned. All of these hormone treatments have side-effects but if they kick cancer's butt.... then why not?
Hi. Ive been taking Letrazole since September and have experienced quite intense hot flushes - to the extent that at minus 2 today I had to take my coat off in the bus as i thojught I might faint and then when in Debenhams!! Also disturbs sleep of both of us My consultant has offered to change to another AI medication which I think Ill try. Also suffer from stiffness and joint pain but thought that was perhaps because Ive not been so active since my op. Im feeling a bit low just now as after surgery, reconsruction and six weeks post op Im recovering from an infection and feel so tired. However, things can only get better Im sure. Trying to be positive is also quite exhausting! Carrie
