22 years after first little breast cancer, it came back, now metastatic. Took Faslodex (clinical trial for dosage) which worked for 3.3 years with no side effects. Great stuff! I'm almost 72, now on chemo (5 1/2 years after second diagnosis - cancer characterized as "indolent" - but it's stubborn!) and still hanging in there.

Few side-effects for me although I may be attrib ... Show Full Comment
