Hi. I have 2ndry breast cancer in my lungs & just finished my 3cycle.

I am taking letrozole but Boots say they can’t get it from suppliers. I’ve tried a few other pharmacies around Chelmsford with no luck.

is anyone else having this problem?

my oncology Dr just contacted me & said he knows of no shortage & to keep trying to get it.

having explained I only have 8 tablets left he has asked if I want to go onto Anastrozole. Is this the same thing? I don’t know what to do.

I was given loads of phone numbers when I was diagnosed- lots of people to contact to help- but each either sends me on to someone else or doesn’t call back, so im feeling very on my own & almost ready to give up.
