hi all, 

I have Stage 4 BC woth bone mets. On cycle 3 of Letrozole and Ribociclib.  I get out of breath easily. Is this a side effect of the cancer/ drugs? Anyone else feel exhausted after simple tasks like emptying the washing machine etc?  I am scared cancer is now in lungs. Can it move that quickly?

Thanks, Michelle


    Hi Michelle

    Feeling exhausted and easily getting out of breath must be distressing and it's natural to fear the worse.

    I'm not a member of this group, so can't help with your question, but I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet. Responding to you will 'bump' it back to the top of the discussion list again.

    Have you told your BCNS about these side effects as she may be able to help?
