Oopherectomy and Exemestane

Hi, am 45 and have been taken off Tamoxifen due to severe side effects. Was already having Zoladex implants but now told I need to take Exemestane plus Zoladex for 5 years. Having had dreadful sweats and insomnia, joint pains etc not too keen on the idea and have been offered Oopherectomy instead. Was strongly ER so need to have the hormone treatment but would like to hear anyone’s experiences of this combination of treatments, not seen anything on the subject in the forums.

Hi Dorsetgirl

I’m just bumping this up for you. I hope someone will now see it who can share their experiences of these treatments

Very best wishes
