Comment:
Took Femarra and developed sensory neorapthy. Went onto Aromasin and am at 5 years on it after 5 years on Tamoxiphen. No reoccurance of Lobular Cancer so I feel lucky. Plenty of aches and pains of joints, depression but Chemo of Taxol had much worse side effects. To keep the cancer away, you can make it. For sweats, Effexor works. I took it with Tamoxiphen. I had cancer at age 58 and am now 6 ... Show Full Comment

After 3 months I stopped and started on the Aromasin. After only 3 doses of this I started having the really bad headaches again so my doctor told me to stop this also. Now they are trying to decid ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had lumpectomy with chemo and radiation 6 years ago. Took Tamoxifen for 2 years, and Aromasin for the past 4 years. Have experienced stiff joints, weak wrists, hand swelling, lethargy, depression, vision blurryness and most troubling--memory loss and general "brain fog". It has affected my ability to do my job, and my family quit expecting me to remember anything a long time ago! I& ... Show Full Comment
