Fulvestrant/Faslodex

Hi All

Does anyone have any experience of this hormone treatment - used in post menopausal women with secondary breast cancer.

I would grateful to know if it’s worked well (or not) for anyone.

Thanks

Fiona

Hi Fiona

I was on the SoFEA trial last autumn, and had Faslodex (with Arimidex or placebo ?!) Injections in the buttock muscle, 4-weekly at the hospital, somewhat sore for a few days afterwards (“bottom effects”)
Sadly the Faslodex didn’t control my liver mets :frowning: (scan after 12 weeks) but they stabilised on EC chemo.
I have heard some good reports though…

Thanks, some of the trial results seem quite promising but I don’t have a great track record with hormone treatments!

All the best

Fiona
