Hi janeypaney

I’m sorry to read you’re having a tough time at the moment. You might find it useful to have a look at the BCC booklet on exemestane, it contains information on how it works, what the benefits of taking it are and the possible side effects. If you would like to read this on line or order a copy just use this link:-


If you have any further questions or would like to talk this through do give the helpline a call where you speak with a member of staff who will offer you emotional support as well as practical information. The number to call is 0808 800 6000 and the lines are open Monday to Friday 9 to 5pm and Saturday 10 to 2pm.

Best wishes Sam, BCC Facilitator
