Choosing cancer risk over medication risks

I understand that it’s the risk based on a sample of women who match the input criteria.
So, you could be in the 95% or the 5% . They don’t know . The podcast made that clear to me .
It’s a stat .

I found it a bit hard to read but it seems my probability of survival goes up from 92.3% to 96. Something per cent and in my case AI only increased my chances by 0.1 - 0.2 % over 15 years .

I’m struggling with the side effects (headaches, fatigue, joint pain etc ) on Letrozole and spoke to my oncologist today. She immediately told me I need to change brands and to speak to my pharmacist. Will give it a go and see if it makes any difference.

Yes mine went from 0.4%, 0.9% and 1.2% in 5, 10 & 15 years with the AI in the old model down to 0.1%, 0.3% and 0.4% in the new but I don’t really know what that means.

Best of luck with the new brand and hope your symptoms ease. x
